New Projects: THE ITALIANS

The Italians is a Portraits Project I'd start about 5 years ago here in Italy where I'm based ,it would to explain with a series of black and white portraits today's social  and political climate here in Italy!
Here a preview, soon more details!

here in Italy we are experiencing a moment of profound social, political and ethnic change, the economy and employment has been thrown into crisis by years of bad governance by Italian politicians, naturally they think much more of their mere interest than of that of their citizens. all this is very reflected on the faces of the Italians that I photograph, above all we can understand from their look.
In this series I specifically wanted to portray all their desperation, poverty, sadness but also and above all a great desire for rebirth and immense dignity.

many of them do odd jobs that are unsafe, poorly paid and even more often are exploited, despite this they never lose optimism and the will to live

Thanks for watching.
