As a kid, Jonathan Higbee dreamed of New York City. Growing up in Independence, Missouri – a satellite of Kansas City – during the ’80s, life was often tough. “I don’t want to be mean to it, but it certainly wasn’t an easy place to live,” he remembers.
In his debut monograph, photographer Jonathan Higbee explores surreal moments in his adopted hometown – a place that’s captivated him since he was a child.
Dies Irae is the first major retrospective exhibition dedicated to the work of Paolo Pellegrin. The show includes more than 150 images through which he tells us many of his stories and reportages. He has become a symbol of that authentic photojournalism (Magnum) that is not afraid of documenting the world by bravelesly staring at it in the eyes.
