Storyteller by temperament, a journalist by nature, and a photographer by necessity. This is how Carmine Rubicco recounts his work that began, by now, in the last century.
“So many stories told through the lens and the ‘pen’, so many places crossed, from Asia to Africa, inevitably passing through Europe and Italy, but, above all, so many people met and known whose soul I carry on me and in my spirit.
Many stories are still missing and waiting to be picked up. Billions I would say, as billions are in the world. They all have something to say in some way, yet my ear is more sensitive to the voices of those who have no voice, to the silent cries of those who suffer and struggle, to the calloused and dirty hands of those who fight every day to have what for many is normal and taken for granted. My eye is drawn to the dull light of those who go unnoticed, to the shadow of those who appear almost transparent.
