Mimmo Jodice was born in Naples, in the popular district of Sanità, on March 29, 1934. In the early sixties he discovered photography and began a series of experimentations on photographic materials and the possibilities of the medium as a creative tool. During these years he lived in close contact with the most important avant-garde artists who happened to be in Naples.
