The Phlegraean Fields, one of the most densely inhabited places in the world, are sitting on a super-volcano. Half a million people learnt to coexist with it and with the constant eruptive activity of gas or mud, with earthquakes and with the bradyseism, a phenomenon causing the soil to slowly swell and deflate for several meters. Life on the Phlegraean Fields is a mixture of anxiety, hope and resignation, in an unique blend of emotional and geographical landscape, where the connections of humans with the nature and God is under the spell of the Volcano.

Güle Güle (goodbye in Turkish) is a personal project focused on the city of Istanbul, third chapter of the "cities in transition" series. Photographs derive from multiple personal relationships to penetrate the complexity of the city with its contrasting microcosms. Gentrification, the marginalization of the poorer classes, the increasing discrimination of homosexuality, the massive migratory influx of Syrian refugees and the Kurdish community issue are just some of the realities behind the subjects portrayed. While still following a documentary approach, we however decided to leave on the background the informative and didactic content of the images to foster the visual immediacy of the pictures and an open ended narrative.

112 p. Hardcover trade book

 

These pictures represent a rite of passage through my own existence. Sex, food, nature, animals, things known and unknown which make me feel sometimes comfortable or unsafe, I always sense an excess of energy, a spill that makes everything unstable, pulsating, restless. A palpitation, that could be subtle or violent, which I want to photograph. There are no dots to connect. I am no more giving a sense to things.

I hold to hear their murmur, instead.
