Sante D'Orazio Photographs at KunstHausWien

VIENNA, AUSTRIA.- KunstHausWien will present Sante D`Orazio Photographs, on view from October 24, 2006 through February 1, 2007. More Italian than American. Unafraid of excessive, complacent prettiness. Catholic celebration of the flesh. Still, the ripeness of a very red cherry shall imply a melancholic acknowledgement of fragility. Sante´s acceptance of his subjects´ good looks is without apology, faithful as he is to the essence of photography as vanitas, a ghostly reminder that the sole beauty we know is fleeting beauty.

Sante, a friend, a photographer, no explanation really needed. Restless, unpretentious, photographs are entertainment too, to catch the moment. The picture will compose itself, speak for itself. (Francesco Clemente) Aus: Vorwort „A Private View“, 1998. A catalogue on the exhibition will be available at the KunstHausWien MuseumShop.
