Mario Marino – Retrospective 2011-2014 — Dubai, United Arab Emirates — 14 JAN - 17 FEB, 2015
The Empty Quarter Gallery, DIFC Gate Village 2, Dubai
Journeying to exotic parts of the world, Marino records his presence in foreign lands with portraits of its people. From India to Africa and across the ocean to Cuba, the resulting body of work forms a remarkable social document and a unique record of communities. Penetrating below the surface, Marino reveals the personalities beneath the images and offers the viewer a glimpse at their identities, aspirations, hopes and dreams as communicated through their portraits. Always central to his pictures is an empathetic connection to his subjects.
