Title: 551 Madison Avenue New York
Author: Alberto Damian
Year: 2020
Publishing house: Simebooks
Genre: Photography
A photographic journey to discover faces, people and people. Through his lens, the photographer seems to want
discover an exact coordinate as an observation point; watch and film people passing by, from one place,
a single fraction of time, look without being looked at. What the photographer proposes, therefore, is a sort
of "theft": defenseless exposure and without the possibility of posing by those who pass.
The photographs collected in this book were taken in New York between 12:44 and 12:59 on September 28th
2017, on the sidewalk of 551 Madison Avenue. Almost all the people who, in those 15 minutes,
have passed. The book collects all the shots taken, in their original chronological sequence.

The author
Alberto Damian lives and works in Treviso. He mainly shoots in black and white and with film (he still has one
camera obscura perfectly operational), but his first book was shot, for a particular series of events, a
colors and digital. Gallery owner of some important photographers, he represents in Italy the most controversial paparazzo of the
history of photography, the American Ron Galella, and collaborates with Letizia Battaglia, the most important and well-known
Italian photographer.
