The book presents a masterful photographic campaign through which Marco Anelli documented the public works of Costantino (Tino) Nivola (1911-1988) in New York.
Through a skillful modulation between light and shadow, distinctive of Anelli’s language, the images–strictly in black and white–offer a profound and evocative understanding of the sculptor’s work–a leading figure in the 20th century art scene–but also of the context that houses them, thanks to the involvement of the surrounding community that participated in the work of the photographer.
The project therefore investigates the works by Nivola scattered throughout the five districts of the city (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island) with the aim of highlighting them, relaunching their knowledge and encouraging their preservation through shared awareness.
