This series consists ina rhythmic sequence of black and white images, which are arranged in a squareor rectangular format.The subject has always been very popular in the history of art and captured theinterest of many artists. Over the centuries, many photographers and painters -such as Tina Modotti, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, the Pre-Raphaelites andGeorgia O’ Keeffe - portrayed the calla lily. This flower, rich in symbols, hasbeen reinterpreted several times in several different ways. The calla lily isalso the subject of Pino Dal Gal’s photographs, a series of images that struckthe observers with their elegance and delicate beauty. The photographer doesnot only portray the flower, but, shot after shot, brings its deepest essenceto the surface. Even though he starts from an analysis on the shape, Dal Galdoes not indulge on a mere formal representation of the flower; on thecontrary, through the use of black and white, he conveys to the observers hispersonal vision of the calla lily as an ideal and symbolic object. Movingbeyond documentary photography, Dal Gal gives us his personal and unique reinterpretationof the calla lily - as the aforementioned artists did.
