Artist Talk and Book Signing Thursday, May 2, 6-8pm

686 Park Ave, New York, NY 10021
As the son of an Italian father and an American mother, Martino Marangoni (born 1950) regularly spent time in New York, where, impressed by the city's skyscrapers, he first learned to use a camera. From 1972 to 1975 he studied photography at Pratt Institute and became acquainted with the work of Robert Frank and Lee Friedlander, among others. His fascination with New York and his ties with friends and family brought him to the city almost every year. He was there when the Twin Towers were being built, and he was present when they were destroyed in 2001. Since 9/11, he has returned to visit Ground Zero regularly, documenting the rebuilding of the area and the changing neighborhood.

Rebuilding My Days in New York 1959-2018 (The Eriskay Collection, 2019) brings together a collection of images from Marangoni's archive taken primarily in Lower Manhattan, and covering a period of 60 years. An intriguing testimonial of the fast-changing city and street life over the past six decades, Marangoni avoids nostalgia or dwelling on the past. Supplemented with anecdotes and personal notes, he provides a reflection of the development of photography in relation to the city, and his personal experiences herein. Rebuilding My Days in New York recalls a photographer's search for his subject and unique expression.

About Martino Marangoni

Martino Marangoni was born in Florence in 1950, where he currently lives. As the son of an Italian father and American mother he grew up bilingual and is of dual nationality. From 1972 he studied photography at Pratt Institute, New York (US), graduating in 1975. By visiting the USA and especially New York every year he maintained his close ties with America and in 1988 was 'visiting professor' at the Cooper Union. Studio Marangoni Foundation (FSM) was founded in 1991, a non-profit organization which provides international, high quality education programs with the intention of promoting the Art of Photography. Simultaneously with his work at FSM, Marangoni carries out a personal research as an artist obtaining international acclaim. His work has appeared in solo and group shows, including Milan, Florence, Venice, Rome, Paris, Toulouse, Arles, Portland, San Francisco and New York. Rebuilding My Days in New York is Marangoni's third book with The Eriskay Connection after Alone Together (2014) and Nonni's Paradiso (2016).
