"And I presume that Jodice has suffered not a little in sticking only or almost exclusively, or rather, by stripping them down, to those single original prints each time produced in the same years that mark them. It is to be assumed that on this occasion, upon reviewing the entire repertoire of prints, the photographer's eye was struck by numerous other shots, once considered by him to be less significant than those chosen to communicate the event being filmed. But today the value of this choice lies in the respect of an already expressed point of view that now becomes symptomatic and therefore indicative of how Jodice looked at things and the facts of art in that temporal juncture between a season full of tensions and ideals, illusory or well-founded as they may have been, and the following one, under the banner of the unfounded and cynical pragmatism of the so-called cultural reflux of the 1980s" (from Corà's text).
