The Lonely Ones

On Thursday, March 31st, 2016, at 7 pm, at Micamera in Milan will take place the inauguration of the exhibition The Lonely Ones, which offers a selection of images taken from the homonymous photographic project by the New York-based photographer Gus Powell.
Inspired by the great cartoonist and author of children books William Steig and his classic from 1942, The Lonely Ones (which pairs Steig’s line-drawn characters with simple one-liners of dialogue), Gus Powell made his own lonely ones – evocative color photographs of interiors and landscapes, inhabited by people, animals and inanimate characters. Steig’s emotional and psychological states (after Freud and Reich) inspired Gus Powell’s open-ended images: lost butterflies, a young woman beside a horse, empty bottles and men who don’t notice blimps are paired, in a perfect balance of text and image, with lines from Powell like “Which way to the symposium?” “Let’s not ruin it by talking.” “Mistakes were made.” “This might hurt.” Gracefully moving from humor to beauty to pathos, these images and their one-liners cumulatively build into a powerful visual and emotional experience.
This exhibition is accompanied by the publication of The Lonely Ones by Gus Powell, published by J&L Books, named one of the best photo books of 2015 and now almost out of print. Last few copies available at Micamera. In the bookshop, a special section will be dedicated to the books published by the imprint founded and directed by Jason Fulford and Leanne Sharpton. Gus Powell will also teach the workshop Based on a true story at Micamera on April 2nd and 3rd. Details here.
