We are Maria Bauer and Giuseppe Scafidi, both Sicilian but from different cities, Catania and Palermo.
We began photographing in our cities but then moved to Rome to increase our knowledge of the photographic tool and darkroom. In 2015 we approached the photozines and D.I.Y. world as a way of communication and distribution against an exclusive photography.
In the past 3 years we’ve made four zines (“Non c’è sconfitta nel cuore di chi lotta”, “NOSTOI”, “Teppa Life” and “Una Storia Romana”), some are the conclusion of a documentary project and others are more part of a personal diary in which we used photos coming from our archives too.
This year we’ve made something different, for the first time we didn’t use our images but the photos that we collected in more than 2 years on the ground of Porta Portese, at the end of the Sunday market.
Everytime we got there it was like a chapter of this little imaginary Italian story was going on, and now it is bound.
