Ezra Petronio Portraits Exhibition Opens in Zurich

Ezra Petronio Showcases First Exhibition of Polaroid portraits in Zurich

A creative genius with a perfectionist’s attention to detail for over 30 years. Galerie Gmurzynska is thrilled to present Stylistics, after two museum shows Ezra Petronio’s first gallery exhibition.

Featuring portraits spread across Galerie Gmurzynska’s spaces at Paradeplatz and Talstrasse in Zurich, the exhibition will survey the career of a legendary figure in the fashion and art worlds, working as a photographer, an art director, a designer, and as a publisher of Self Service magazine.

I am old school, pre-digital, and I learned how to make everything from scratch. My father and grandfather were in this business, and the mentors I worked with taught me about attention to detail.”

The show focuses on Petronio’s unique use of the Polaroid – a medium pioneered by Andy Warhol and Lucas Samaras – by using only a Land camera and FP-100 Polaroid Films by Fuji, creating unique portraits of some of the most influential personalities of the last three decades, chronicling and archiving the seminal shifts in arts and culture.
