Bart Celestino at Pitti Uomo, Florence

Across the sea. Pitti Uomo – a menswear clothing and accessories showcase held annually in Florence, Italy – will this year pay homage to Australia as its invited guest nation, with a selection of local designers invited to present their collections at the event.

Accompanying the collections will be a photographic and digital exhibition by photographer Bart Celestino, known for his iconic captures of turbulent ocean surfaces. Celestino’s exhibition will see a return to the subject matter that he holds close to his heart, Australian seas, while also playing with the reality of the frames – projecting mirrored reflections of each shot across broad canvases.
