BOOK AND EXHIBIT PROJECT
MILAN, MADRID, PARIS, MUNICH, LONDON, NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES
I have been thinking about
publishing a book and organizing a photography exhibition for years.
Collections of rare or never-seen pictures
featuring Sophia abound throughout the world. My dream is to have those
pictures shown in various international Loren tribute
in six countries with the publication of 6 books, one for each country.
Sophia Loren is a living legend and the world deserves to see the
photographic treasures of her caught in the camera eye for the past 58
Exhibits and book releases would
take place over a one-year period.
Countries selected are Italy (Rome and Milan), Spain (Madrid), France
(Paris), Germany (Munich), England (London), USA (New York and
A book and an exhibit for each
country where Sophia spent a lot of time during her career will be
Each venue will feature photographs taken from studio sets, award
ceremonies, premieres, social events, studio sessions pertaining to a
For instance, the French exhibit would have pictures from Five Miles to
Midnight, Lady L, Verdict and Soleil, the Cannes Festival and the
social events and candids from the years Sophia lived in Paris, fashion
spotlight on Maison Dior, etc.
These pictures will not appear in other countries' exhibitions or books.
Contributors with excellent writing skills and a good knowledge of
Sophia's role and activites for a specifc country are required to
document pictures and events.
Each book will have a text written by a knowlegeable fan, with a
foreword by a known author, journalist or photographer of the same
All books should be written in each country's original language
accompanied with English translation. The German edition would also
feature a section on Bürgenstock.
This project cannot exist
without the participation of sponsors, donators and patrons of the arts.
Everybody's help and connections are needed to approach selected
companies, groups, museums, photographers, magazines, government bodies
and patrons of the arts
in order to get the funds and low-cost pictures required for both the
exhibit and the publication of a photography book.
I will personally be investing a lot of time doing the same but it is
just not something I can do all by myself.
If well organized - and this is the only option - this tribute
will not only be the best event to feature Sophia Loren but also
an excellent platform for worldwide publicity.
Please contact me if you think
you can help or have any original ideas.
You can write in English, French, Spanish or Italian since I am fluent
in all those four languages.
