With an acute and deep look at the world around him, Alexander Cimmino, tells a story over approximately ten years about the contemporary city and is in a continuous search of new ways to represent and interpret it. Cimmino is a proclaimed Neapolitan photographer who has also spent a significant amount of time in Milan creating his work. He has developed many series, of the more famous are:
- MAY-DAY, shown at Naples Fotocittà, 1997. Cimmino purposely closes a circle with this show dedicated to its city of origin.
- CCTV and Matrix, 2001. The two series compose this small, but dense extension of the MAY DAY series.
