Home (a+mbookstore, 2022)

 

 

In February 2019, I entered the Rosarno camp in Reggio Calabria and carefully photographed the dwellings built by African labourers. They were in a camp provided by their employers, without any form of assistance, shelter or services.
‘Home’ shows how traditional African architecturincredibly manages to adapt, especially in adverse environmental conditions, while maintaining originality, creativity and, above all, great dignity.
A concept of balance that, far from an aesthetic principle, is consistent with an intimate order and a harmonious unity of parts. This seems to me the best response to the evidently brutal condition in which it has to exist. For me, it was a matter of showing the dignity of the human being that prevails even in the cruellest and most adverse circumstances.  – Bruna Ginammi

Bruna Ginammi (Bergamo, 1964) lives and works in Milan. After a three-year school of photography, she began her personal research in 1989. She distinguished herself as a leading figure on the Italian photography scene by participating in a group exhibition (held in the cultural section of SICOF in Milan in 1991) with her work Lo sguardo del poeta (The Poet’s Gaze). In 1995 she received the European Kodak Panorama Award for young photographers at the Rencontres d’Arles photography festival. In the same year she participated in the exhibition Un secolo di Ritratto Fotografico in Italia 1985-1995 curated by Italo Zannier at the Venice Biennale Italian Pavilion. Since then she has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Italy and Europe. In 1999 she began to explore the medium of video, and made his first work, Ophelia’s awakening.
