FELLINI IN ACTION, 8 ½ SET PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL RONALD is as if by magic, Federico Fellini’s legendary black-and-white film 8½ is making a comeback thanks to Paul Ronald. Armed with his Hasselblad cameras, the set photographer photographed the movie in black and white. But he loaded a color roll into another camera, not having any idea what he would do with the resulting pictures. FELLINI IN ACTION, 8 ½ SET PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL RONALD exhibit will be composed of 40 photographs, 8 of them from the color roll.
Photography curator Antonio Maraldi will host an exclusive exhibit pre-opening online presentation on December 7th, 2020 at 12pm PT by invitation only with opening remarks by Consul General of Italy in Los Angeles Silvia Chiave.
Maraldi manages the Centro Cinema Citta’ di Cesena and organizes exhibitions, film screenings and catalogs with a special focus on set photography in cinema.
He is a cinema critic and has curated more than a hundred volumes and monographies of historical photography.
