 "La Gioia" october - december 2014

Born in 1934 in Italy. Lives and works in Naples.

Mimmo Jodice sees photographic language not only as a descriptive mean but also as an expressive one. Since the 1960’s he has been experimenting with different materials, abstract forms, linguistic and technical aspects of photography. Deeply involved with avant-garde movements during the 1970’s, he started devoting himself more and more to conceptual photography. Jodice developed a perspective in which the human figure is no longer the protagonist, but an empty urban space, laden with symbolic power and metaphysical memories. Absence becomes the sign of a historical disappointment with the disorientation of culture and the Italian political world of these years.
