In 2018, after careful work on his archive, Paolo Pellegrin inaugurated an anthological exhibition of his works, that can now be visited in the Sale delle Arti” at Venaria Reale.

Over 200 photographs take the viewer on a journey spanning the armed conflicts that tear the world apart and the climatic crises in which nature – and man – are the protagonists. We also discover the space within the walls of his studio, “rearranged” at each stage of the exhibition, to allow the observer to enter the world of the photographer and deeply understand the choices, intuitions and urgencies of his unstoppable and multifaceted research.

The exhibition also features a special, brand new section dedicated to a personal and intimate chapter of Pellegrin’s work – the photographs taken in Switzerland with his family during the quarantine period following the Coronavirus lockdown.

I'm more interested in a photography that is 'unfinished' - a photography that is suggestive and can trigger a conversation or dialogue. There are pictures that are closed, finished, to which there is no way in.
