Baku Street Photo Festival presents the opening of the solo exhibition “Homo Urbanus Europeanus” by Jean-Marc Caracci (France). The exhibition is organised by the Delegation of the European Union to Azerbaijan and YARAT Contemporary Art Space within the framework of Europe Days will showcase the photos of 27 EU capitals. The “Homo Urbanus Europeanus” exhibition is showcasing lonely characters, human beings shooted in urban background. Its author, the artist photographer Jean Marc Caracci, has covered urban landscapes the same way an archaeologist observes, looks for, digs up and tries to reconstruct some primitive spaces. He observed the city inhabitants and their environment like a biologist studies within a cell. Each picture of the series “HUE”, by the accuracy of its framing and its crisp style, sounds like a hymn to the magnificent citizen. This character walking, stopping and weaving through the city, often lonely but no less proud and determined, does not show any kind of alienation, but rather has the stature of a conqueror. European capitals photographed, each in the same style, sober and without any cultural or social visibility, thus favoring the similarity to the difference, the “europeanity” to the diversity.
