SYNOPSIS

ENGLISH

Vulnerabilities, violence and societal brutality are harsh realities that transcend geographical boundaries. Capturing striking and compelling instants from 12 countries, STREET explores a raw transcription of society that pervades both human interactions and physical spaces.
Through the shocking juxtaposition of images, this exhibition is a thought-provoking journey in contemporary concerns.

 

MALTESE

Il-vjolenza, il-vulnerabbiltajiet u l-brutalita’ fis-soċjeta’ huma realtajiet li jmorru lil hinn mid-distinzjonijiet ġeografiċi. F’din il-ġabra ta’ ritratti miġbuda fi tnax-il pajjiż, il-wirja STREET tesplora sens ta’ preokkupazzjoni soċjali li hu presenti kemm f’interazzjonijiet umani u kemm fi spazji fiżiċi.
Permezz ta’ l-immaġnijiet xokkanti, din il-wirja hija vjaġġ li jqanqal il-ħsieb dwar s-soċjeta’ kontemporanja.
