Saturday, March 5, 2022 op 19 the photographer’s exhibition is inaugurated Francesco Faraci.
Much more than a photographer, an artist at three hundred and sixty degrees: the eyes of the Palermitan is a kind of lie detector that has always loved to fall into the liveliest contexts and the most marginal.
The cities, but especially the suburbs, are for him a kind of mood to discover. Nothing is left in his lap. There is a story behind each person portrayed and there is a truth that collides with the present each time the light illuminates the subject.
His photographic works “Malacarne” and “Sicilian Human Atlas” were awarded many prizes, real immersions in the human wonder of his beloved Sicily.
Among other things, he was noticed by Jovanotti, who wanted to be with him during the Jova Beach Tour 2019, an experience from which the book Jova Beach Party was born, Chronicles from a New Era (2019, Rizzoli).
His are the covers of some translations of Roberto Saviano’s books and promotional photographs taken by Achille Lauro in the Roman suburbs.
Some of his reports have been published in national and foreign journals (The Friday of the Republic, La Repubblica, Il Manifesto, Time Magazine, Globe and Mail, The Guardian, VICE, Erodoto108).
He is also a video maker and writer of novels, short stories and essays.
Faraci’s presence in Brindisi provides a kind of participatory artistic residence. In addition to the exhibition, morning of Saturday (of 9) for the districts of the Adriatic capital a photographic walk is planned (Info on Whatsapp at 3281475784).
