Il Cotone.

Categorised as ART., PHOTOGRAPHY.

Benedetta Falugi’s photos look like stills from that awesome, really understated foreign film that your friend showed you – and then you forgot the name of it when trying to chat up that hot film student, which resulted in you saying something slatheringly cringy like “it just has that continental charm to it.” These images are a selection from the project, ‘Il Cotone,’ which is Benedetta’s depiction of the industrial quarter and working class neighborhoods within Piombino in Tuscany, Italy. Three generations of her family were born and raised there, which prompted Falugi to notice “people still permeated by values of solidarity and collective & individual behavior that are still almost of another time.”
