About this product
- DescriptionCoverage of Palermo: street life, politics, murders, and an undeclared war that in the nineties hit an entire city. This book reconstructs a piece of Italian history through memories that will allow a younger generation to kw the facts that may longer be remembered, kwledge that is essential for growth. In a contact print from negatives of pictures taken on March 27, 1992, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borselli are sitting at the same table. Of the four pictures from that afteron more than twenty years ago, one has become an icon of an Italy that longer exists. Capturing a moment in time, as Leonardo Sciascia once put it, can be a unique photograph, a moment of unrepeatable equilibrium between form and content. Life and death alternately sweetly. Among his negatives there is neither indulgence r any attempt to evoke pity.They are t part of the baggage he carries while he shoots pictures. Instead, it is news, documenting an event and passing it on for what it is. He shoots. Others can decode, others can attribute meta-linguistic meanings to what is simply a picture.
