Un’Antologia brings together over 150 photographs and previously unseen works, each presenting the multifaceted themes that Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin has explored throughout his extensive photographic career. From the changing beauty of the Antarctic to shooting in conflict zones across the world, Pellegrin’s visionary approach to photography has bestowed him with a number of esteemed accolades, including ten World Press Photo Awards.

This landmark exhibition at MAXXI – National Museum of the 21st Century Arts in Paolo’s hometown of Rome, showcases his photographic work in two large sections: the first on human beings, and the second on nature. Viewers will also be able to take a look behind the scenes into Paolo’s creative process, as notes, notebooks, and drawings that have aided his photographic work will be on display. Works on L’Aquila, the Italian city struck by a devastating earthquake in 2009, will also be on show.
