Like a Samba

For the first time, works from three photographers – René Burri (1933 - 2014), David Alan Harvey (1944) and Francesco Zizola (1962) – come together in Rome for the exhibition Like a Samba. A collection of photographs which express a sort of longing, a sort of love song, a sort of saudade. As the presentation text of the exhibition explains: «This collection of images looks at the beaches of Rio de Janeiro from the outside. Three foreigners, yes, a Swiss, an American, an Italian – but all three with a certain creed – have walked this beat for months, years and decades. And their Rio remains enigmatic. Like the Girl from Ipanema, within reach, but not quite...»

The twenty images on show at ILEX Gallery in Rome, co-curated by Deanna Richardson and Daniel Blochwitz, range from the 1950’s through last year, and are filled with the rhythm and colors, the visual spectacles and the mundane, as well as the ebb and flow of everyday life in Brazil. In fact, there are allusions in many of these pictures that point to harsher realities underneath the candy-colored surfaces of beach culture or the optimism of Tropical Modernism. Like a samba, these pictures are catchy and beautiful, proposing an uninhibited lust for life that may seems exotic to a European gaze. Yet, the scenes depicted were not performed for our eyes, but rather capture the daily dance of struggle for which the music also speaks.
