VISIBILI

This a series of portraits I made during the work of Camperemergenza in 2015, a charity association that every evening provides food to homeless and poor people in the streets of Brescia, Italy.

The name 'Camperemergenza' comes from the camper used every evening to move around the city, carrying sandwiches, fruits, drinks, yogurts and whatever food is given by donors.

In the past there were mostly Italians who benefit from this service, but nowadays the number of foreigners (mostly poor migrants) is increasing.

The word "Visibili" means visibles, as opposed to the condition of invisibility that characterizes homeless people's lives, at the bottom of society; "Visibili" refers also to the faces of these people, and I chose portraits to show them.

I not only photographed displaced people but also volunteers.
