It is not down on any map: true places never are
– Herman Melville, Moby Dick
Matteo Di Giovanni will lead us along a journey from North Cape back to Milan, ending with the story behind it. A journey told through words that introduce images and videos, both by imself and by the authors who inspired him.
Micamera, that participated to the work behind the scenes, will accompany him with a temporary thematic bookshop.
Matteo Di Giovanni (1980) is a documentary photographer based in Milan. He received a MA in Photography at the University of Westminster in London in 2012. After a serious road accident, while working in Bosnia and Herzegovina, he is now back on track. Above all he works on long-term projects related to social and anthropological issues, focusing on the theme of memory and identity. Meanwhile, he is developing a very personal and intimate project about biotechnologies and the hybridisation of the human body in collaboration with Micamera. Since the beginning of 2016 he has launched a new project called Officine Fahrenheit and dedicated to film and digital photography.
Reaching the Cape has been supported by 286 people through the crowdfunding campaign and by a series of sponsors. Among them: Centro Protesi Inail – ALPA of Switzerland – NOC New Old Camera – Studio Fahrenheit. Art direction: Giulia Zorzi for Micamera
