The official partner of Paris Photo since 2011, Giorgio Armani is presenting the 5th edition of the Giorgio Armani ACQUA exhibition, the annual event dedicated to the theme of water in the world of photography: ACQUA #5. ACQUA #5 explores the concept of the limits encountered in depicting water. Limits in terms of surface, impenetrability and continual movement as in the work of Debra Bloomfield, water acting as a barrier like a second skin, as illustrated by Joel Meyerovitz, water stirred up to its extreme limits in the work of Trent Parke, or Facundo de Zuviria’s water at the limits of the earth in the cloudy sky . ACQUA #5 sets us before some queries on the photographic limits in depicting the element, as observed in the sculptural and photographic works of Graciela Sacco or in Alison Rossiter’s experiments on photographic paper. Water, always a current theme in Giorgio Armani’s work, from 2009 onwards also became a personal social commitment for the stylist who has started up a charity campaign  “Water for Life” with the aim of furnishing drinking water to communities in need. The last campaign was able to gather millions of litres of drinking water to support the Green Cross International (UNICEF in the USA) and its initiatives in different countries throughout the world.  The exhibition will take place on the first floor of the Grand Palais, at the Salon d’Honneur.

The works of art exhibited were selected by Giorgio Armani courtesy of the Paris Photo 2014 gallery.
