Università di Bologna, Collezione di Zoologia, Bologna, 2021

At the heart of Foto/Industria 2021 is the food industry, a theme of fundamental importance due to its inextricable link to wider questions of philosophy and biology, history and science, politics and economics.

The Fisheye project, created for Foto/Industria, investigates the territory of Valsesia. It was selected as a sample for studying the transformation of a river landscape through its relationship with fishing, which has developed here over the centuries starting from a tradition among the oldest in the world.

The works are exhibited seeking a profound relationship with the display cases and animals that are part of the Zoology Collection of the University of Bologna. Some photographs constitute the landscape in which these animals can easily be imagined, others, on back-lit supports, are exhibited inside the display cases themselves.
