The Events Horizon
Paolo Pellegrin

Until January 7, 2024, the Island of San Giorgio in Venice will host an extraordinary photographic exhibition, “L’orizzonte degli eventi” (The Events Horizon), showcasing the work of acclaimed photographer Paolo Pellegrin. Organized by Marsilio Arte and Studio Pellegrin in collaboration with Magnum Photos, this exhibition explores Pellegrin’s remarkable career spanning from 1995 to 2023.

Paolo Pellegrin’s lens has witnessed contemporary conflicts and the far-reaching impacts of climate change. With over 300 images, including previously unreleased photographs and a series on Ukraine, this exhibition is a testament to his enduring commitment to documenting human stories. Pellegrin’s humanity-focused perspective has earned him recognition as one of the world’s foremost photographers.

The concept of the “event horizon” from physics serves as a metaphor for Pellegrin’s work. Just as an event horizon surrounds a black hole, his photographs delve deep into the heart of history, illuminating the unseen. Photography, for him, is the bridge that takes us beyond boundaries and into the heart of these narratives.

Pellegrin’s work is not just about documenting conflicts; it’s a journey into understanding our relationship with the world. His photographs capture the fragility and strength of humanity within the grandeur of nature. From war zones in Iraq and Gaza to environmental disasters like the Japanese tsunami and Australian wildfires, Pellegrin’s lens tells the story of our ever-changing world.

Venice, a city synonymous with fragility, serves as the perfect backdrop for this exhibition. Pellegrin’s photographs resonate with the theme of sustainability and the delicate balance between humanity and the environment. His work challenges our assumptions and contributes to the creation of a nuanced visual language that encompasses various aspects of contemporary life.

“The Events Horizon” is not just an exhibition; it’s a profound exploration of human existence, captured through the lens of an exceptional photographer. Pellegrin’s images invite us to reflect on our place in a rapidly changing world and to consider the vital connections between people and their environments. This exhibition is an opportunity to witness the world through the eyes of an artist dedicated to telling stories that truly matter.
