In Cambodia. Photographs from the Tiziano Terzani Archive
Venice, Island of San Giorgio Maggiore
Intended to complement the reflections on Cambodia, the photographic show installed in the exhibition spaces of the Manica Lunga Library – In Cambogia. Photographs from the Tiziano Terzani Archive – is curated by Angela Staude Terzani. The exhibition features the photographs taken by her husband Tiziano Terzani on a trip to Cambodia in 1980. The exhibition will run from 9 May to 2 June 2014. The photos provide a vision of the country between destruction and reconstruction, just as Onesta Carpenè must have seen it in those same years. The main focus is on Cambodia in the early 1980s, immediately after the end of the Khmer Rouge regime, when the country was still devastated by civil war and the liberating-occupying Vietnamese army. Most of the photos are previously unpublished. They have been selected from the Terzani Archive, now being installed in the Giorgio Cini Foundation, which in 2012 already received Terzani’s private library.
