Wedding photography is treated as the lowest caste in the photography world, deemed too commercial and not sufficiently artistic. But wedding photographers are the creators of a personal and collective memory that closely mirrors the society where they operate. Their work is the litmus test of a specific culture.
With “I DO” I have selected wedding photographers from 4 continents.
Enoch Boateng and his brother Maxwell Aggrey are local stars in Ghana; Sam & Ekta are a couple in life and business operating a successful studio in Mumbai, India; Thomas Sauvin is a French artist at the helm of “Beijing Silvermine” project; Oreste Pipolo was the master of the classical flashy Neapolitan wedding, an institution of the South of Italy now carried on by his daughters Ivana and Miriam; Manal Alhumeed is a young photographer based in Riyadh; Valerie Baeriswyl is a wedding photographer in Switzerland and in Haiti; Lindsay Ladd is a photographs of gay and queer weddings in Philadelphia (USA); Juan de la Cruz Megías Mondéjar is a photographer active in the 80’s and 90’s in the South of Spain; Massimo Stefanutti has amassed a collection of wedding albums, for the first time he is showing a selection of some of his favorites.
Let the celebration begin!
