Body and soul

Body and soul

This series of portraits of young prostitutes from various villages in Uganda and Africa now gathered in Kampala, has been taken by photographer Giorgio Palmera using his trademark limpid and direct style. He evokes an ambient of warm intimacy and intriguing atmospheres, mixing disinhibition and naivety. The portraits are striking because they are anything but clichés. There is respect, love, the desire to understand.  The pictures are accompanied by the carefully crafted interviews, sensitively gathered by anthropologist Gino Bianchi in the best traditions of Fotografi Senza Frontiere reports. And the girls demonstrate their trust, they relax and tell their own stories as women warriors. Pictures expressing the strength of caresses that bring comfort.
