“Living in the world” represents a journey through human places, especially in the place of living par excellence: the home. Thermometer of a historical era, faithful anthropological interface, symptom and care of man in space and time, the house is in fact the place that more than any other is able to represent the identity of a culture, highlighting its diversity, characteristics, morphology. This project collects images of homes from all over the world, interpreted by the photographic gaze of the two authors, travelers passionate about anthropology, and aims to restore a vital identity to human places, passing through four declinations of living:
ABSENCE, which with its apparent voids occupies and organizes the space
ESSENCE, which reflects the need for living and the identity of man, the founding elements of communities
EVOLUTION, which represents the transformation of housing needs and the change of symbolic and aesthetic plans
UTOPIA, which outlines an ideal living space to strive for, often regardless of the achievement of results
Houses in the world therefore represent somewhat the starting point of this reflection on man, protective shells, founding cells of societies and economies around the world.
This exciting journey into the human habitation is described through the spectacular images of a traveling photographic exhibition, told by the direct experiences of the authors in a series of conferences and deepened in the large-format photographic volume “Abitare il Mondo, journey in the evolution of human space “published by White Star – National Geographic, on sale in the best bookstores around the world or online: www.whitestar.it – www.iago.com
