With Flags of Ame­ri­ca, the Fon­da­zio­ne Foto­gra­fia adds a major new chap­ter, dedi­ca­ted to twen­tieth-cen­tu­ry Ame­ri­can pho­to­gra­phy, to the inter­na­tio­nal collec­tion of the Fon­da­zio­ne Cas­sa di Ris­par­mio di Modena.

With images main­ly shot bet­ween the end of World War II and the 1970s, the works fea­tured in this volu­me out­line a peri­od of gre­at cul­tu­ral fer­ment in which the USA, having estab­lis­hed its posi­ti­on as a major eco­no­mic power and a cul­tu­ral model, also wit­nessed the growth of inter­nal cri­ti­cism and pro­test, drawing on the ide­as of the coun­ter­cul­tures, anti-war and pro-Afro-Ame­ri­can rights move­ments, also mar­ked by a gro­wing envi­ron­men­tal awareness.

But the real prot­ago­nist of Flags of Ame­ri­ca is pho­to­gra­phy, which not only shows its­elf to be an effec­ti­ve tool for the ana­ly­sis and inter­pre­ta­ti­on of the world around us, but also a lan­guage which in that peri­od was con­ti­nu­al­ly ques­tio­ned and rene­wed, thus giving life to major new lines of research—from docu­men­ta­ry pho­to­gra­phy to more inti­ma­te and even spi­ri­tu­al prac­ti­ces. And it is for this rea­son that the artists fea­tured in this volu­me were and con­ti­nue to be real flags of inter­na­tio­nal pho­to­gra­phy: points of refe­rence for their own genera­ti­on as well as out­right mas­ters for tho­se who have fol­lo­wed in their footsteps.

The pres­ti­gious new volu­me by Ski­ra devo­ted to inter­na­tio­nal con­tem­pora­ry pho­to­gra­phy is focu­sed on some of the grea­test Ame­ri­can mas­ters of the twen­tieth-cen­tu­ry. This will be the first of two books (with the second com­ing in 2014) that seek to illus­tra­te the out­stan­ding qua­li­ty and varie­ty of the works which have mar­ked Ame­ri­can pho­to­gra­phy from the mid-twen­tieth-cen­tu­ry to the pre­sent day. This first volu­me pres­ents a detail­ed and anno­ta­ted selec­tion of works exe­cu­t­ed bet­ween the 1940s and 1970s by twen­ty pho­to­graph­ers of undis­pu­ted impor­t­ance— from Edward West­on and Robert Adams to Minor White and Gar­ry Wino­g­rand, from Lee Fried­lan­der down to Ste­phen Shore — who­se pur­suits repre­sent bench­marks in the histo­ry of con­tem­pora­ry pho­to­gra­phy. As in the case of other tit­les in the seri­es, the repro­duc­tions of all the works are accom­pa­nied by a cri­ti­cal appa­ra­tus with texts dis­cus­sing the area, artists, and rese­arch explored
