The project includes about 250 color shots taken by 48 refugee minors from the Hotspot of Samos (Greece) with disposable Kodak cameras, after following the photography workshops of Nicoletta Novara, creator of the exhibition. During the photography workshops organized within Mazì, the 48 students learned how to use a professional camera, how to shoot in different lighting conditions, practiced portrait and street photography and used professional editing programs. At the end of the training modules, each received a disposable Kodak in color, with the task of telling their life outside the school.
The photographs are divided into two chapters: pre and post pandemic. The images tell of the impossibility of respecting social distancing, the fear of getting sick, people who have started small businesses in order to survive. Among the shots, however, there are also photographs of hope, which tell of a beautiful sea, of the hills and trees on the island of Samos, of the enthusiasm in discovering Europe and our culture.
The exhibition created and promoted by the non-profit organization Still I Rise is scheduled from 3 to 11 September 2021.
The exhibition can be visited with free admission during the Museum’s opening hours: Tuesday morning 9.00-13.00 Thursday afternoon 14.30-19.00 Friday morning 9.00-13.00 Saturday afternoon 14.30-19.00 Sunday first and last of the month and 15 August at 14.30 – 19.00
