How busy 2014 was!
In 2015, will come out the “BRETONNES” book with Actes Sud in French, and Thames & Hudson in English (“Portraits in Lace, Breton women”), simultaneously with the four Bretonnes shows in Bretagne. This series provides a different way to deal with the background and the historic iconography attached to the subject. “Bretonnes” deals with folklorism in this part of France (which is very much alive), and on a broader perspective is focused on the iconic representation of women in the early 20th century. About the other gender, WILDER MANN will be still shown in Italy and France, including a selection of new pictures made this year in England, Ireland and Italy.
And I’m going on with two photographic series in the East (Japan) and in the West (more soon) where Wildness and theatricality still hold a big part in the stories.

There are still some WILDER MANN around… and I keep meeting them. These are some great moments of joy. This is the making off from the meeting with the Bear of the Comune di Jelsi.
This year, I’ve worked in England, Ireland, Italy. I’ll meet more groups in 2015, a bit further…
