Milano, Italia. Photographs by Mario Carrieri. C.M. Lerici Editore, Milan, 1959. 166 pp. Quarto. First edition. Decorated paper over boards and dust jacket. 135 full page gravure reproductions.

Carrieri was a leading photojournalist and cinematographer who devoted himself to photographing Milan for two years between 1957 and 1959. The obvious influence here is William Klein, whose book New York was published in Italy (among other countries). As Parr & Badger explain, however, the tone of Carrieri's work sidesteps the humor inherent to Klein's style. As such, he "confines himself to the city's grittier aspects, being drawn to the desolate outer suburbs, and even when photographing the city's glamorous center, he manages to make it look dark and dangerous...It's concentration on the seamier side of life makes Milano one of the most important works of the neo-realist tendency of the late 1950s."
