The Bata Shoe Museum is excited to showcase the work of Tuscan photographer Matteo Brogi in celebration of Italian Heritage Month. Sophisticated and beautiful, Unconventional Portraits offers visitors the opportunity to “meet” the students, dancers, architects, fashion designers, wine producers, celebrity butchers, perfume makers and carabinieri that represent Italian society explored from the knee down. Revealing varied passions and lifestyles, Matteo’s work masterfully conveys an intricate weaving of emotion and story through the lens, illustrating the important role that footwear plays in the modern Italian identity.
An exhibition catalogue is available in the Museum gift shop beginning June 5.
