Fondazione Capri, is a private Italian foundation founded in 2009 by a group of members including local authorities and entrepreneurs, to promote the culture of the area and enhance the architectural heritage and landscape of Capri. Since its inception, the Foundation has invested in the promotion of photography. Starting in 2010, the Foundation began to organize, among other projects, an annual Festival of Photography, which hosts and commissions works by Italy’s most renowned photographers. Their photos have been shown during the last five years in Capri, at Villa Lysis, an ancient monastery of Certosa di San Giacomo and the Casa Rossa. Fondazione Capri is pleased to announce Capri Trend hosted by SALT in Istanbul.

Fondazione Capri’s main objective is to address the beauty of Capri and share this perspective with the world through exhibitions. Each artist in Capri Trend explores the essence of the island through their personal vision, revealing a heartfelt grandeur of this unique location.

For Capri Trend the curator Denis Curti selected five photographs from each of the artists Olivo Barbieri, Maurizio Galimberti, Francesco Jodice, Irene Kung and Ferdinando Scianna. The exhibition consists of twenty-five works that offer a contemporary response to the cultural history and long-standing beauty of Capri.

Previously shown in Bermuda, Baku, Johannesburg and Mexico City, in museums, art spaces and cultural institutions, Capri Trend will be hosted by SALT Beyoğlu in Istanbul from December 20, 2014 - January 20, 2015.
