The 'The Battle for Mosul - Rise of the White Flag


Afghanistan, Iraq, South Sudan and Somalia are far-away countries: distant not only geographically but also from our daily life and from whatever we are used to. Countries that I have visited between 2014 and 2017 to tell stories of conflict. I believe photography is a light-written language to question the future perspective of our societies and each photograph is a fragment of reality taken from the unstoppable flow of time. An image can make closer different societies, confronting ourselves with the conditions of different human beings. Instants of cruelty and moments of joy.
