Entrepot Gallery opens a new autumn exhibition with photographs by Italian Ferdinando Scianna.

21 black-and-white photographs are on display and were all taken in the artist’s native Sicily.

The collection includes religious festivals, social events, and bodies contorted by mysterious forces.

Entrepot Gallery owner Daniel Boeri said: “Scianna takes a moment in time and through his images creates a visual event. His pictures were taken 40 or 50 years ago, yet they speak to us today.”

Scianna was a Magnum Agency photo-journalist who worked worldwide and close friend of Henri Cartier-Bresson. Yet the Italian never forgets his native Sicily and always says he takes his photographs with his “Sicilian eye”.

Siciliens runs from 12 October to 16 November
