Avarino Caracò, Italy
My love for Photography comes from an anthropological background that over the years has led me to observe every aspect of the cultural expressions that I happened to live. The leitmotif of each of my projects always has an identity basis, whether it is collective or individual expressions, through travel or personal experiences, conceptual representations or close portraits. I live my photographic experiences as a continuous revolution, as if it were a magnet that projects me towards a future, partly visible, but mostly to be discovered. The commitment in my projects is mainly to establish a relationship with a social context, through the technique of participating observation, trying each time to establish an honest balance between what my gaze is able to see and what the subject that photographer wants to convey.
Gabriel is a young Transgender from Palermo (Italy). I met him in one of the most important moments of his and my life. I was in Palermo for a project I'm working on about gender identities, I managed to get his phone number and by contacting him I discovered that he had just had a mastectomy, a fundamental part of his physical transition path. Entering his home and being able to attend a day of his convalescence was a very big gift. Caterina, his wonderful mother, chose to be part of the project also with irony, offering her colorful bra to represent the ironic part of this very painful but equally beautiful journey.
This exhibit features photos taken on a photo trip to Havana, Santieras and Trinidad, Cuba. Many people have holidayed in Cuba and returned with standard holiday shots. Instead, in this show I share what I captured of the people and culture of this wonderful country.
