It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gianfranco Gorgoni (Bomba 1941 – New York 2019), a renowned Italian photographer who was best known as a documentarian.
Gianfranco was a gentle man who loved life. His insatiable curiosity was evidenced by his extensive travels around the world capturing striking moments in history. Magazzino Italian Art is very fortunate to have had the opportunity to collaborate with him, as evidenced by the intimate portraits which capture the spirit of 12 Arte Povera artists, currently on view at the entrance to our galleries.
He was a good friend and he will be missed.
