For Robert Rauschenberg, considered one of the fathers of Pop Art, photographs were a fundamental element of his work, co-stars with newspaper clippings and the “objets trouvés” of his “combine paitings”. But photography was also a passion that the artist has practiced throughout his life, immortalizing the surrounding world and the companions of his adventure: family, studio, travels to Europe, artist friends including Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns , Willem de Kooning and John Cage, the human body and everyday objects. Through photography, Rauschenberg wanted to make his own real world that has so strongly characterized his works and his existence and whose wealth, as the artist himself said, can only be collected. The volume, dedicated to Rauschenberg’s photographs, is intended to be a tribute and a documentary tool of an era of American art of the twentieth century.
