Imagine New York
Before going to Sardinia, I went to Trento, an Italian city on the north close to the alps. They have a beautiful museum called MART. It was built by a famous architect called Mario Botta. I went to visit this black and white photo exhibit about New York, from the end of the 19th century to the 21st. There were great photographers such as Richard Avedon, William Klein, Andy Warhol, Alfred Stieglitz, Henri Cartier-Bresson... The pics I put are by Paul Strand (I just loved it. Printed very small : Wall street, 1915), Bruce Davidson (untitled), Diane Arbus (one of my favourite photographers: Child with a hand grenade) and Berenice Abbott ( this was printed quite big and it was really strong: Fifth Avenue).
