“Delicatessen” by Michael Scaturro at the Retramp Gallery, Berlin
#SaveTheDate – The mainly analog photos of the American photographer and journalist Michael Scaturros tell us about life in cities. With the perspective of the flâneur, we roam the streets and passages of major cities and their crowds. From 2007 to 2019 through New York, Berlin, London and Miami.
Meanwhile, they are also documents of time, reminiscent of a bygone era before the pandemic. This happens particularly impressively with the photos of pre-Brexit commuting in London. Here we realize how quickly times change.
We also experience a tender glimpse into the lives of his grandparents through the documentation of his grandfather’s hospitalization, which tells a universal yet intimate story, capturing the fragility and fleeting nature of life.
Fleeting in-between moments and poetic details, images like short stories that inspire viewers to continue telling the stories themselves.
