Eight years since the last exhibition of his photographs in Rome, Urban Solitude offers a broad examination of Wim Wenders’ perception of reality. Wenders uses photography as a medium to observe, capture and preserve the changing moments through which humanity is constantly moving. The artist utilizes analog technologies by way of counteracting the digital technologies that encourage the transient nature of our modern world.
The exhibition presents twenty-five photographs in which the subject of the urban landscape, dear to the artist, is inextricably connected with that of memory. Each image exudes a feeling of nostalgia and desolation, but also calm and natural beauty, as past narratives and human actions can be sensed in the absence that the artist frames.
