Sardines In The Square
Picture taken during the "Sardines" event, a recent italian social and political movement.
The movement was born in Bologna in November 2019 during the election campaign for the regional elections in Emilia-Romagna declaring itself in opposition to populism and nationalism. The movement then spread rapidly throughout Italy with street demonstrations.
In his works Milan-based photographer Federico Odello explores the theme of street photography as a form of social documentary.
Federico does not impose his vision of the cities but rather walks through the streets, listening to whispers and background - the echo of life that runs an unconscious theatrical performance. This approach leads to the mute and contemporary testimony, with an unprecedented force of expression.
