OMBRE DI MEMORIAImmagini e storie di migranti da Richard Mosse a Georges Perec

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The following pages present the analysis of a crucial issue for the genre of thephoto-text, that of migrations intended as stories of wandering and hope and respect to whichthe literary word and the photographic image are still questioning, especially for whatconcerns the opportunity and the modalities of narration and memory. Two cases distant intime and space seem to offer a reflection on the inexhaustible question, and above all on theway in which it can be tackled without falling back into the often sterile ground ofdocumentary or memorial narration: Incoming (2017) by the photographer Richard Mosseand Récits d’Ellis Island. Histoires d’errance et d’espoir (1980), the work of Georges Perecand Robert Bober.
