Mimmo Jodice

Mimmo Jodice was born in Naples. His name is well known in the history of Contemporary Photography.
In early 1960’s he began to experiment different materials, abstract forms and all linguistic and technical aspects of Photography.
During the 1970’s he was in contact with the most important avant-garde artists, such as Warhol, Beuys, Kounelis, De Dominicis, Paolini, Sol Lewitt, Kosuth and many others.
In 1969 he began teaching Photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, where he taught until 1994.
His first solo exhibition was held in Urbino in 1968. Since 1980 he developed a new perspective in which human figure was no longer the protagonist. A double thread runs through his work:
a surreal and uneasy vision of urban landscapes, and a research of his roots and the myths of Mediterranean.


Mimmo Jodice’s artistic shots dedicated to the Mediterranean interpret at best the spirit of Italian cultural diplomacy in the geographical space who’s our country is a vital center, crossroad of past and present, crucible of cultures and traditions. This constitutes the core of Jodice’s extraordinary study, between statutes and human faces, ancient ruins of history and plentiful landscapes that seem to hope for a bright future. Now more than ever, this call of the shared cultural heritage which characterises the Mediterranean as a place of peaceful coexistence and richness of dialogue and contamination, is necessary to build bridges against the walls of indifference and intolerance.
