“These images are part of an ongoing project about one of the smallest islands in Italy with just 13 residents living there all the year.”
Editor’s comment: This haunting and muted exposure simply illustrates the isolated island and its small community. A difficult, low-lit image to get right but perfectly executed by the photographer, eluding to elements of sadness, isolation and forgottenness. However, the boat itself indicates that life goes on, and access to the island for its residents and others is possible – all is not lost. Connection persists. A documentary series like this needs dedication, understanding, respect and patience which seems apparent throughout this scene. Additionally, this photograph works well on its own and would look beautiful in a printed format.
