Il Reportage and Officine Fotografiche Roma are pleased to present “Butterflies/ Chapter 4”, the first solo show by Swiss photographer Scott Typaldos, the winner of Il Reportage Photojournalism Award 2016. The exhibition, curated by Valentina Piccinni, will consist of twenty-five photographs from the fourth chapter of “Butterflies” that, after the chapters realized in West Africa, Kosovo and Bosnia, has been realized in Indonesia. Through a sensitivity next to the subjects, this intimate work of strong emotional impact brings to light the daily living conditions of mental institution patients, often forced in chains. Images that seem an invitation to empathize with the portrayed women and men, a project that does not want to give answers but rather ask questions.
“The only thing I might still be ready to assert is that the group, the system and the society are the creators of illnesses. The type of mental illness a country develops is a distorted and coded mirror of its own social and political dysfunction”.
Monday to Friday : 10 am – 1.30 pm/ 2.30 pm – 7 pm. Free entrance
