After being hardly hit by the global economic crisis in 2008, Iceland has been the protagonist of a miraculous recovery. The island has chosen to take a step back (or forward?) returning to land and betting on a green and sustainable economy based on natural resources. Dauðalogn – which means ‘dead calm’ in icelandic - is a journey through a country of sharp contrasts, but also the bildungsroman of a child, Andry, becoming an adult in an open dialogue with an extreme nature.
Based in Rome (Italy), i started to study photography 4 years ago at Scuola Romana di Fotografia, where i followed the masterclass in reportage and photojournalism, including Massimo Mastrorillo’s seminary “Pass Through With the Eyes”
