A disquieting intimacy

ILEX Gallery is proud to present for the first time in Italy A disquieting intimacy, an exhibition by the Italian photographer Paolo Patrizi curated by Deanna Richardson.
The works of this powerful series break away from the stereotypical and often narrow perception of the portrait. In the eerie makeshift atmosphere of sex camps, Patrizi presents an intimate study about the life of the women of Benin City working on the outskirts of Rome. In a market strongly segmented by gender, age, educational qualifications and population shortages with immigrants, Italy’s underground economy attracts immigrant workers providing them jobs without regulations – blurring the line between legitimate and illegal enterprises.
The series of 19 large and medium prints will be on display at the 10b Photography Gallery in Rome. The Italian debut at 10b Photography Gallery follows exhibitions in London, Basel, Prague, New Delhi and at the Chobi Mela Festival in Bangladesh and the Angkor Photo Festival in Cambodia. The 2009-2012 series has won numerous awards and recognition, including World Press Photo, Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize and PoYi.
The exhibition is a change of venue for ILEX and will be inaugurated on Wednesday April 22, 2015 at 7 pm. The author will be present at the inauguration.
