The retrospective documents the depth and range of anthropological research focused on different communities, the individuals of which they are made and the codes of dress they adopt to be part of the group.
The entire ground floor of Armani/Silos presents over 250 powerful, honest images that catalogue the visual richness of human beings.
Utilizing a crystalline, direct style, but conserving an empathic approach to his subjects, Charles Fréger explores the dress codes of small and large groups, concentrating on external layers – garments, masks. The photographer’s research is expansive: it starts from the small and the local, and widens over the years to achieve a universal dimension. Fréger is interested in the way people approach deep fears and express the need or desire to belong.
