Roberto will give a lecture and talk about his photography, growing up Italian-American and coming out as gay.
Roberto Patella is an internationally known photographer based in Milan and New York City. He has been commissioned to photograph for magazines such as Esquire Italia, Vanity Fair, L’Uomo, and Vogue. Sixteen of his photographs are on display adjacent to the Circulation Desk area of the library in an exhibit entitled "Finding Your Light" where Roberto explores photography from three different angles (human form, portraiture, and cultural expression) examining the relationship between himself, his subjects and their surroundings. Half of these images were taken in Italy, the homeland of Roberto’s parents and now the country where he currently calls home. The exhibit will run until October 18th. On Thursday, October 10, Roberto will give a lecture and talk about his photography, growing up Italian-American and coming out as gay. Refreshments to follow.
