I CARBONAI - South of Italy, Calabria - Oct 2022

This series depicts a rugged, weathered man with a determined expression. He is dressed in working clothes, covered in dust and smudges of charcoal. The man's face is calloused and blackened from years of working with the charcoal, and a sense of pride and hard work is evident in his stance. The entire production process of the charcoal factory is done by hand.

This is a reminder of the human effort and dedication that goes into the production of everyday items, often taken for granted. The series is a powerful tribute to the hardworking men who labor to keep the wheels of this industry turning.
