Salone Milan 2010 – Michael Nyman @ Galleria Carla Sozzani

At Galleria Carla Sozzani is “Cine Opera” , a video + photo exhibition by british composer Michael Nyman.

Curated by fashion icon Diane Pernet, the show is a visual collection of daily scenes captured by Nyman and made with a keen eye to reality during his many journeys across the planet. the video project, defined by himself as cine opera,

It is accompanied by music and sound that forces us to think about life in modern society.

Nyman began taking pictures in 2003. Repetitive acts, unexpected reflexes, faces of people, objects’ details, night landscapes, shop windows. His shots are like a musical diary made of images.

Nyman seems to have no doubt about the expressive supremacy of photography over film. Susan Sontag said that photographs can be remembered more easily than images in motion because they are a precise slice of time instead of a flow. To Nyman, each photograph is a privileged moment that has been transformed into a small object that we can save and look at over again, forever.
