For two decades, Carla Sozzani pursued a career in editorial fashion before opening Galleria Carla Sozzani in 1990 and inventing the concept of 10 Corso Como. This unique venue in Milan where art and culture were joined has grown to become a mythic and international reference point.
Organizing hundreds of exhibitions over the years, and driven by her love of photography, she has since been presenting shows that range from the origins and lesser known pioneers in photography to the well known photographers of today.
Over the passage of forty years of discoveries and encounters, she has assembled a formidable photography collection of works that alphabetically ranges from Berenice Abbott to Francesca Woodman. This Fall, a selection from her collection curated by Fabrice Hergott, Directeur of the Musee d’art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, will have its premiere viewing at the Galerie Azzedine Alaia.
