My new laic crib, the fiteenth of the series, this year is dedicated to rock music. In december 2012 a photogallery in  Turin has documented thiis work with a rich choices of pictures. Going back to 1999.  The subjects, which often have a clear social and political intention, change from year to year. Christmas 2010 was dedicated to  the garbage in Naples, 2011 to the great economical world crisis and 2012 to the end of the world. This year the theme is less pessimistic

THE RED SHEEP DOCUMENTARY

The Red Sheep: a life against the tide DOC from Sara Tirelli.

The documentary is about the most significant stages of her private life, always strongly linked to the political and cultural history of Italy. Her photographs and her stories are there to witness her personal vision of the world, from the role of women in a male-dominated society to the ironic criticism that has characterized every single choice of her. Private and public visual documents that over the years have built an archive of life all to be discovered. A warm and subtle portrait of a singular attitude towards the world.

The documentary is in pre production stage and will be premiered in spring 2014.

7 ICONS EXHIBITION

icons

A new quest was initiated and developed in subsequent years from these little icons of Filicudi saints, in many ways still traditional and relatively simple, leading to much more complex, problematic works: the current secular ICONS, dedicated to figures in some way symbolic at present.
