The personal exhibition 'Sicily' by photographer Fulvio Bugani – a Leica International Ambassador – will be held on August 17 at Casa Italia in Hanoi.
The exhibition is designed to introduce to the Vietnamese public the image of Sicily, while also creating opportunities to interact with both domestic and international photographers.
The exhibition will take place on August 17 at Casa Italia on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Italy and Vietnam.
Known as a man with an instinct to tell stories through photos, Bugani is presenting 20 selected photographs at the exhibition that encapsulate the quintessence of Sicily.
Secluded from the bustling cities, Sicily embodies the slow, peaceful pace of life, often compared to the calm waves of the Mediterranean. It is a rhythm of life that follows the sweltering heat of the sun as it rises and the silence as a day draws to an end.
Sicily's seclusion can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse. It has a power that can surge, but can also break a person. As the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily is an autonomous region of Italy with a varied and complex history spanning thousands of years.
Sicily has been ruled by many civilizations, including the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, and Spanish. Each left its own indelible mark on the culture, architecture, and cuisine of the island.
Sicily is a tourist destination full of charm, with romantic beaches, beautiful scenery, and a rich cultural heritage. Through his lens, Bugani captures the unique beauty of this island, immersing viewers in the unique stories and emotions that only Sicily can deliver.
Bugani is an independent photographer from Bologna, Italy. His work mainly explores social and cultural elements, including interactions between people. What interests him most when it comes to photography are the daily lives of ordinary people, who, if analysed carefully, will always reveal the extraordinary stories behind them.
His images have been displayed and exhibited at events and galleries worldwide, including the World Press Photo exhibition and the Leica Galleries in Asia and Europe.
The street documentary Soul y Sombra has been widely praised at the Leica Camera Headquarters in Wetzlar, Germany, the Milan Street Photos Festival, the Arezzo International Festival, the Photolux Lucca event, and the IMP Padua Festival, as well as in London, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Beijing, Rome, Bangkok, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and Frankfurt.
