Five and a half hours

Entry Description

Roma - Italia 2013 – 2015 With the long term project 'Five and a Half hours' my purpose is to narrate the undefined transitory status of people who have voluntarily abandoned their homeland because of unbearable work conditions, and live outside their country with the awareness that their stay is not permanent. There is a time difference of five and a half hours between their native country and their temporary home abroad. They know that one day they will return home, but in the meantime they live torn between the present, the memories of the past and the uncertain prospects of a distant future.
