Photo exhibition

A photographic journey that reveals what lies behind our smartphones, jewels, PCs and TVs.
An experience to discover a Dante's hell that winds through the circle of environmental externalities, expropriation, violations of human rights, crime, prostitution, diseases, murders, corruption.
A journey seen through the eyes of those who suffer the imposition of a mine and those who defend the local populations from the abuses of the great mining giants.
An opportunity to know what no mass communication means will ever show, but that affects us all as direct consumers.
We too, a little like Dante who manages to see the stars again, we can give a better end to these realities with activism, research and training.

The exhibition is hosted by the Bistrot Mentelocale of GENOA, Via Garibaldi 18, from 10 June to 10 July 2017

The exhibition consists of photographs taken by the SOURCE International team , and by unpublished shots of internationally renowned Italian photographers such as Zoe Vincenti , Stefano Stranges and Alessandro Parent and who have donated their precious works for the occasion.
