Conceived and realized by Isabelle Bezin and Karine Chahin, the book begins with a text by the photographer Jean-Baptiste Huynh, who describes a planned portrait that the death of Virginio Bruni Tedeschi, on 5 July 2006, meant he could never complete. The photographs in the book were selected from the Virginio Bruni Tedeschi’s private archives and they are now part of the artistic patrimony of the Virginio Bruni Tedeschi Foundation.
Taken from 1987 to 2005, the images were selected and then reunited for the first time in a photographic book, which then accompanied the exhibition Mondo Uno Virginio Bruni Tedeschi, held for the first time in the Italian Cultural Institute in Paris, from 27 September to 24 October 2008.
The volume is on sale only at the bookshop opf the exhibition Mondo Uno. Virginio Bruni Tedeschi
