In the Tunnel of Love: images of Ukraine today
The Tunnel of Love in Klevan (Northwest Ukraine) has become known in recent years as an Internet phenomenon and is now considered one of the most romantic tourist destinations in the world. – The authors were on site, searching for romance, and portrayed the visitors as well as the tunnel with its contradictory history.
With 124 pages, 95 photos and numerous texts, this photography art book deals with several aspects of the leafy tunnel in 5 chapters: atmospheric pictures convey the fairytale atmosphere; a large report and interviews with Ukrainian couples illustrate the current situation of Ukraine; an unexpected discovery tells of the painful past.
The Valley of Belice: ruins in the heart
This photo book is the result of an investigation that took place in July 2010 at the Belice Valley in Sicily, which suffered a devastating earthquake in 1968. The work arises from a reflection on the absolute inadequacy with which the central and local government faced the emergency and the subsequent recovery.
With the help of a linguistic ploy which emphasizes the clear position of the author, himself a Sicilian, the images highlight the absurd urban utopia that was designed for the rebuilt of the disaster areas.
