photographer Mimmo Jodice has a knack for capturing ancient statues up close and personal. In "Mediterraneo," the solo show featuring more than 40 of his dreamy black-and-white works currently up at the Byblos Bank headquarters in Ashrafieh, Jodice confronts viewers with intimate portraits that encourage an emotional connection with the subject. The figures in his photographs are not made to look alive. Not a single living creature appears in Jodice's photographs, giving them a sense of timelessness.Crucial to what makes the photographs in "Mediterraneo" so powerful is the light, and Jodice's experiments with focus and resolution. The photographer often brings an unexpected point of his shot into sharp relief while leaving the rest blurred, giving the photograph a dreamlike aspect. Moody and deeply atmospheric, Jodice's photographs seek out the spirit of long abandoned spaces and statues, imbuing them with life of their own.
