Photography, feelings and homes

Filippo Steven Ferrara


This selection of images is the result of a photography laboratory organized with children and teenagers aged between 9 and 14 over a period of six months, between April and September 2019. The laboratory was one of the two courses, painting and photography, Angeli della Città – a small volunteering organization based in the center of Florence providing clothing and food supplies to individuals and families living under the poverty threshold – organized in order to grant access to children and adolescents coming from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds to artistic techniques, teachings and instruments which in most cases remain precluded to them. Through a personal approach to their subjects and to the photographic medium itself, the participants work creatively convey a unique representation of their environments and feelings.
