Auckland Festival of Photography presents Cronostasi by Italian photographers, Gianfranco Ferraro and Chiara Panariti. This series is displayed on 8 lightboxes in the heart of the city.
Cronostasi is a photographic reflection on the contingent situation of the population in Milan during the lockdown period determined by Covid-19, with a gaze that invites us to meditate on the new time of the human condition. A time that is always physically the same, where life continues suspended in the everyday routine of its own living space, while outside everything becomes foreign and unreal. The project focuses its attention on an intimate and universal search for a renewed perception of time, that is a moment of crisis and an opportunity at the same time.
Presented in partnership with the artists, this project was part of the 2020 Kaunas Photo Festival, Lithuania.
