AAAA!! Siamo finalmente giunti a mostrarvi il PBM (PhotoBook of the Month) di ottobre 2019, scelto dal PhC CapalbioFotografia!! Yeeessss! Il PBM scelto si intitola “ITALIANA” (Ed.Kehrer) e l’autore è lo “Humanistic Photographer” #GiulioRimondi!!!
ITALIANA is a descent through the unchartered, across irregular byways and small-sized characters; the secondary geography of an unglobalized country where modernity makes little sense.
The pleasantry and the slums; the squallor and the sacred; desolation and poetry. Stylistically, ITALIANA aims to be a fundamentally classic photography book. In times of easy seduction, where audience and success have become synonyms, escaping
the language of spectacularization becomes an act of revolt. There is a moving curiosity in these pictures and an affection towards a country so well known – so unknown. ITALIANA aims to
make a step towards the European identity, not only the Italian one, and towards a kind of photography – humanistic photography – that derives from empathy for one another.
»This voyage is a gentle lilt, a quiet music that meanders through the night with joy. Nothing is definitive, if only for the fact that it is photography we are talking about; what was experienced is
now definitively gone, and what remains are images that are engorged with a strange temporality, impossible to locate on a calendar, definitively impossible to date. Yet this is clearly today’s
Italy; and while there is no nostalgia, there is indeed an enormous tenderness.« – from the text by #ChristianCaujolle.
