Luigi Di Sarro started taking photographs around early 1954, and focuses on this technique in the late ’60s and ’70 during which the artist’s experimental photography can be distinguished for a particular performative tract. Among the issues discussed, both black and white and color, we recognize some macro-themes: body, light, movement, space and time.
In addition to the material kept in the Historical Archives dedicated to the artist, two significant funds are kept at the National Gallery of Modern Art (Rome) and National Institute for Graphics (Rome). In addition, in 2009, some artist’s photographic works were acquired and exhibited in Paris at the Centre Pompidou (see Q. Bajac, Le corps en éclats, La Collection de Photographies, Ed. Centre Pompidou, 2011, pp. 16, 78, 93).
