Photos on African immigration win a prize in Italy 0

Claudia Romiti, a Tuscan photographer, chose to work on African immigration in Italy when applying to the Lucca Digital Photo Festival contest. And the choice has paid off: Claudia  won the prize and will receive her award next November 28 during the Awards Night  in Lucca, Italy.

“Ri – Africa” –  her works’ title – give a different take on the issue of immigration. Today it is one of the main problems debated on at a political level, but the aim of the photographer’s work was to make migrants escape anonymity and give them their identity, going far from stereotypes and abstraction.

The exhibition will be produced by the Lucca Digital Photo Festival and will be held in the ex- Manifattura Tabacchi from 14 November to 8 December 2009.
