For Italian Photographer Antonio Gibotta, photography is a way to show what’s inside without the use of the words. It"s a means of expression. He loves traveling and searching for stories. Foreign cultures make him curious. He often looks, and takes pictures, of the poor and outcast in order to sensitize people who often look at them with contempt. He wants to spread the sense of solidarity. Some of the reality he"s seen, like in South America, Africa, India, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Serbia and Europe, has changed his mind and values. He says he"s become much more grateful for his life and its gifts.
His work : Enfarinats: Spain’s “Flour War” :
Every year in Ibi, a small town in Spain, citizens engage in a mock battle that has centuries-old roots. Their weapons of choice? Flour, eggs, and colored smoke bombs.
