Mid way on the main road from Islamabad to Kabul, the contemporary Muslim city of Peshawar, which means “The Place at the Frontier,” remains in many ways a place on the edge, still buffeted by frenetic movement and ceaseless transition.
Photographers Archives: Paolo Verzone
Paolo Verzone, born in Turin, Italy, in 1967, currently based in Paris. In the 90’s, with Alessandro Albert, he created a work on Muscovites, collected in the volume Volti di Passaggio (Peliti & Associati, Rome 1992). In the following years he developed personal projects.
Through subjects which are hard, frequently morbid and often far from our everyday concerns, these photographers are taking on the primary role of the artist. They are revealing our deepest contradictions and expressing their dreams and the nightmares which we prefer to forget.
