This story by Alessandra Sanguinetti seems to be the story of creation.
It has something biblical, something mythological: the man who accompanies the animal, feeds and educates it to lead it to the extreme sacrifice.
The first thing that amazes us as we leaf through these pages is the violence, which is, however, very different from the violence we don’t see when we buy meat at the supermarket. It is the violence necessary in human-animal interaction when the latter is a source of livelihood.
Every portrait of an animal heralds sacrifice. To portray an animal is to give it a name, a connotation, and to give it a connotation is to condemn it to death.
Each image in this book gives us a disturbing portrait of the line we cross when we end a life, and what it means to be in a relationship of dominance over another living being.
It is possible that exploring the boundary that separates us from what we subjugate can lead us to a better understanding of our nature as human beings, and the way in which we exercise it in the world.
