IN DEPTH: MIMMO JODICE
Neapolitan photographer Mimmo Jodice discovered photography in the ’60s, exploring conceptual forms and social issues from behind the lens. His work, which often references his cultural roots, offers up a surreal view of urban landscapes and eerie remnants of the past (the ruins of Pompei; a crumbling building in Naples). One of the artists exhibiting at Photomed 2015, an annual event that celebrates artists from the Mediterranean, he needs sunshine and quiet to feel stimulated.
I’m most excited about… A beautiful, sunny day.
Happiness is… Feeling that people love me.
My biggest vice is… Laziness.
If I had to wear one thing for the rest of my life, it would be… Jeans and a shirt (and in winter, a sweater thrown over the top).
A trend that makes me cringe is… Noise.
