Steve McCurry in Genoa: a look at childhood through the photographer’s lens

steve mccurry genova 2023

Children – Steve McCurry represents the first thematic exhibition in Italy dedicated to the world of childhood, with images never before exhibited in Europe, captured during nearly 50 years of his career.

The exhibition, curated with skill and sensitivity, presents a kaleidoscope of portraits that reveal the innocence and diversity of children in every corner of the planet. Each shot conveys the genuineness of the child’s gaze, a universal language capable of expressing joy, energy and the ability to play even in the most difficult circumstances.

Through McCurry’s images, visitors will be transported on an exciting journey through different cultures, social realities and environments, from India to Brazil, from Afghanistan to Italy. This journey not only celebrates childhood in its many facets but also seeks to raise awareness of the issue of child exploitation, a reality still present in many parts of the world.

The exhibition in Genoa is made even more evocative thanks to Peter Bottazzi’s extraordinary staging and Silvia Rigoni’s video content curation. It articulates between images of war and poetry, suffering and joy, offering a comprehensive overview of the condition of children in the most diverse contexts.

In addition to the emotion aroused by the photographs, the exhibition serves as an opportunity to reflect on the role and rights of childhood. Informative and educational activities will be organized for adults and children, offering an opportunity to learn more about the Convention on the Rights of the Child, a valuable opportunity to raise awareness and engage the younger generation on issues of great social importance.

In addition, part of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to initiatives of Defence for Children International Italia, an association that actively works to promote children’s rights not only in Italy but also globally, demonstrating the power of art in promoting tangible social change.

The audio guide will accompany visitors on this journey, offering a full immersion into the vast world of emotions and experiences that characterize McCurry’s extraordinary photographs.

This exhibition is not only a look at childhood around the world, but also an invitation to reflect on the responsibilities and rights of future generations, entrusting the present with the creation of a more equitable and just future.
