"Recall" on SI Fest

The Savignano Immagini Festival finished in Italy last weekend. My photobook "Recall" was a part of the exhibition "From archive to book", which was included in the program of the event. So much the new one happens to me this year, and exhibition in Savignano is the debut show of my photobook abroad.



From exhibition description:
"Images bought at second-hand markets, found in family albums, downloaded from the Internet or simply picked up on the street, and then put together with original documents from government or private archives are appearing more and more frequently in the work of many photographers today. Seen as a necessary documentary source for grounding and developing critical thinking on art in general and photography in particular, for the artists in this exhibit the archive is a resource for finding new materials to be used in refreshing our present. This selection from more than sixty volumes brings together some of the finest work by authors from around the world and independent publishers; which allows From archive to book to explore different ways of acquiring, interpreting and rearranging archival materials, and bringing them new meaning".
