Fragile, but at the same time a symbol of resilience and strength, the dwellings photographed by Bruna Ginammi draw attention to an often invisible and ignored reality. Near the town of Rosarno, in Calabria, Italy, there is a village built by African labourers. The camp was provided by their employers, who pretend not to see the living conditions in which these people live.
The phenomenon of immigration in Italy is a discourse increasingly linked to an economic-social policy aimed at consumerism. Men, women and even children flee their homes in the hope of a better future, but find themselves doing precarious or underpaid work, in dangerous and extremely uncomfortable conditions.
Bruna Ginammi’s photographs are a direct visual testimony, without any filter, of what really happens in our country. Yet, they give dignity to a culture that finds in its own tradition a great capacity to adapt.
“…The guiding thought is the concept of balance which, far from aesthetic logic, is in tune with an intimate coherent order, with a harmonious unity of the parts which, it seems to me, is the best response to an evidently inhuman condition in which it exists…” – Bruna Ginammi
