Codex Sardinia

Italy
Sheep breeding is one of the most practiced trades in Sardinia

Codex Sardinia is a photographic project, in progress, that wants to tell about current Sardinia.
It does this by trying to propose a photographic language that deviates from the classic photographic canons to which the “social” have accustomed us, a language that can be traced back to “street photography”, precisely because it is a photograph that tells the everyday in all its facets .

It then tells of a Sardinia that is still strongly linked to popular traditions, traditions that still today are deeply rooted in the multiform manifestations that characterize the Sardinian culture, but not only.

From the Carnival events with its typical masks, to the traditional manifestations of traditional clothes, through the various religious events, up to the everyday life, the author intends to offer a portrait of a land where customs are an “intangible” heritage that makes Sardinia unique.
