IN PAROLE. Three seminars about photography and writingTeju Cole presents Punto d’ombra

MAXXI Auditorium – admittance free while places available

Images and words that, like the pages of a visual diary, follow and bear testimony to his various journeys and peregrinations around the world

Punto d’ombra is the first photographic book by Teju Cole, a writer and photography critic for The New York Times Magazine.
Here Teju Cole gives further proof of his extraordinary capacity for precise meditation on memory, love and friendship, this time entrusting his story to the images he takes and creates daily, all accompanied by brief and poetic writings.
An original, courageous work that combines the author’s poetic landscape photography with his lyrical, allusive and committed prose.

“A street is not only its tarred surface, the buildings alongside it, the cars fast or slow, the people around you. It is also the way those things relate to one another, the way they combine and recombine.” Teju Cole
