Über dieses Produkt
- Kurzbeschreibung<p>"In 1977, I met Franco Basaglia, director of the manicomico (lunatic asylum) at the hospital in Triest, who was also the<br>leader of an alternative psychiatric movement. Taking advantage of the chaotic political situation in Italy at the time, he<br>started to close several psychiatric hospitals with a group of doctors, and had 'Law 180' passed in 1978, which resulted<br>in the definitive closure of the asylums. Franco encouraged me to take photographs of this reality, 'If not, they will not<br>believe us,' he told me. With more than a hundred thousand people interned in psychiatric asylums all over Italy, the<br>situation was indeed dramatic. He also introduced me to directors of other asylums in Venice, Naples, Arezzo and Turin.<br>For four years, until the closure of the hospital on the island of San Clemente very close to Venice, I photographed<br>these places of pain to preserve them in memory and to pay tribute to Franco Basaglia - who died from a sudden illness<br>in 1980. My film about San Clemente came out in 1982, but it's only now thirty years later - after a long pause - that<br>I have finally edited and designed the photographic work that was begun all those years ago." Raymond Depardon<br>Raymond Depardon, born in Villefranche-sur-Saône in 1942, belongs to a generation of French photographers reluctant<br>to over-interpret its subjects. Depardon developed a profound love for the Middle East and the desert, recurrent themes<br>in his later work. In 1967 an encounter with Gilles Caron led to the founding of Gamma, through which they were<br>assigned to the most troubled parts of the world. In 1973 Depardon became Gamma's director. From 1975 to 1977<br>he travelled in Chad and received a Pulitzer Prize in 1977. The next year Depardon left Gamma to become a Magnum<br>associate, then a full member in 1979, when he also received a George Sadoul Prize for his film Numéro Zéro.<br>Depardon's numerous awards include the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the César Award for Best Documentary and a<br>nomination for an Academy Award. His books with Steidl include Villes/Cities/Städte (2007) and Manhattan Out (2008).</p>
