Mondo sports surfaces for Martin Parr photographic exhibition

Two padel courts will be installed installed at the location of the exhibition and a barge on the Po will frame what has been called the autumn exhibition of the Piedmontese capital.


CAMERA - Italian Center for Photography presents “Martin Parr. We ❤ Sports ”, the exhibition that combines photography and sport: a broad journey through the shots of an absolute myth of contemporary photography.

The exhibition will be held from 28 October 2021 to 13 February 2022 in the spaces of via delle Rosine 18 on the occasion of the first Turin edition of the Nitto ATP Finals.

The exhibition, curated by Walter Guadagnini with Monica Poggi and created in collaboration with Gruppo Lavazza, institutional partner and historical supporter of CAMERA and with Magnum Photos, traces the career of the great English author through about 150 images dedicated to numerous sporting events, with a thematic focus centered on the shots taken by Parr on the occasion of the most important tennis tournaments in recent years.

For the occasion Mondo has supplied two synthetic turf fields for the game of padel tennis: one right at the CAMERA headquarters, which hosts the exhibition; the second on a barge on the Po river that will be used as the promoter location of the Nitto ATP Finals event scheduled in Turin in the coming weeks.
