By Lorenzo Sestieri

Exhibition curated by  Valentina Sestieri

“Susy”, “Susy with a hat,” “Susy in the pool,” “Susy Nude” are some of the labels applied on the boxes of slides shooted by my father between the late 70’s and early 2000’s.

Lorenzo Sestieri is a birdwatcher, photographer for passion and environmental activist, he has always focused his production in the held of naturalistic photography. These pictures, however, tell the story of another passion: the one he has for my mother, Susanna.

Lorenzo met Susy in elementary school, in 1964. Lorenzo and Susy are still in love.

The exhibition is a production of BACO about photographs made with the precious support of MINIMUM.
