Razza Umana and Souvenirs from Treviso
As part of the Treviso Photographic Festival, 60 portraits from photographer Oliviero Toscani’s Razza Umana (Human Race) project will be displayed in Piazza Rinaldi. For years, the legendary Italian photographer has snapped photographs of individuals in the world’s streets and squares. «RAZZA UMANA presents a collective subject», wrote art critic and curator Achille Bonito Oliva. «Oliviero Toscani, acting as a special envoy, has entered into and examined the realm of conformity and globalization. With his front-on view, he gives us a seemingly infinite number of portraits that confirm the artistry in photography. The differences that coexist are represented as a value».

Once upon a time there was an Englishman, a Romanian, a Pole, a Canadian, two South Koreans, an Italian-Romanian, a German, a Ukrainian, an Indian and three Italians. Far-flung cultures; conflicting perceptions; different languages, lifestyles and tastes. All in Treviso.
