Covid19… Need to Re-Born.

Year 2020 has passed. A year in which everyones lives faced an invisible and unknown aggressor. A year where death walked among us. A time when fear of the unknown and of others has isolated us. An epochal confrontation with our weakness. At first I hoped for an epochal social change that would bring us closer to others. An human-based social democracy... but utopia sank at the same speed as the virus spread. The pandemic forced me to be aware of me and all my frailties. So as the time pass I felt more and more the need to be reborn... the uncertainties as my foundation... re-born...

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made photographer. I come from the Italian province. I picked up the camera with the intention of being able to find a way to express myself in 2010 and just try to tell the life stories of men closely, especially the ordinary ones, related to the need to be able to live day per day. Until now I brought footstes around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
