As a woman, I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of arriving in a city unknown to me and to experience it and explore it through the lens of my camera. As I first reached Shanghai the project 24h was born, a non stop journey passing from night to dawn and again to the following night.
Through her images, Bruna Rotunno tells the story of an untold Shanghai, a cracked and reconstructed Shanghai, contradictory and contrasting, always moving and populated by visionary and surreal faces. The artist moves through the city alone, chasing light and shadows, so as to transform the architectural space in a haven for body and thought. Through her photos she tells of emotional constructions and of the identity of an ancient population extended towards the future.
Shangai 24h is a solo exhibition ,part of Made in China and was held at Triennale Milano in 2010
