Event Details

An exhibition of previously unseen work by Maltese photographer Guido Stilon (1932–1975).

Capturing Maltese life in the 1950s and 1960s with a vivid and surprisingly modern, insightful approach to the subjects within his frame, Stilon’s work encompasses street photography, scenes of urban, industrial and agricultural labour, and outdoor portraiture of friends and family.

Yet, despite his brilliant eye for character and detail and an extraordinary ability to be in places and moments that matter, Stilon remains an enigma. Little is known about his practice and his name is not included in the canon of Maltese photography, despite having enjoyed some success abroad and a close association with the Ellis family of photographers.

In 2018 Magna Żmien were approached to preserve his collection of tens of thousands of negatives and thousands more colour slides, which had remained unseen since his premature death in 1975.

Curation by Letta Shtohryn, and Artistic Direction by Andrew Alamango.

The project is supported by Arts Council Malta - Project Support Grant, APS Bank, the Malta Postal Museum & Arts Hub and ILAB PHOTO LAB, Print & Framing Shop.
