Riassunto: Maraini: Acts of Photography, Acts of Low is an extraordinary selection of the photography of Fosco Maraini in a beautifully printed, multilanguage, oversized hardcover edition. Maraini's career as an ethnologist, photographer, filmmaker, mountaineer, writer and professor spans a period of more than 60 years. Perhaps best known for his work on Tibet and Japan, Maraini has extensively photographed the Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountain ranges of central Asia, Southeast Asia and the south of his native Italy. His work on Tibet and on the Ainu people of Northern Japan is perhaps the most important historical documentation of two lost cultures. Maraini features four essays in three languages (English, Italian, and Japanese) and more than 100 black-and-white and color images.
L'autore: Fosco Maraini resides in Florence, Italy, where was born in 1912. He has written dozens of books and articles now translated into several languages, and taught Japanese culture at the University of Florence. He accompanied the noted Italian Tibetologist Giuseppi Tucci on two expeditions to Tibet in 1937 and 1948. Maraini has exhibited his photographs numerous times in Europe and Japan.
The four essays are by Dacia Maraini, Maraini's daughter and one of Italy's foremost writers; Martin Collcutt, Professor of East Asian Studies and History at Princeton University; Nicholas Clinch, author and former director of the Sierra Club Foundation; and John Bigelow Taylor, photographer and co-producer/designer of Maraini.
