Carmignac Photojournalism Award 10th Edition: ‘AMAZÔNIA’ BY TOMMASO PROTTI – Saatchi Gallery
The 10th edition of Carmignac Photojournalism Award is dedicated to the Amazon and the issues related to its deforestation. The award is being chaired by Yolanda Kakabadse, and the jury met in November 2019 and awarded Tommaso Protti. From January to July 2019, Protti – an Italian photojournalist –travelled thousands of miles across the Brazilian Amazon to create this reportage with British journalist Sam Cowie. From the eastern region of Maranhão to the western region of Rondônia, through the states of Pará and Amazonas, their images showed life in modern day Brazilian Amazon, where social and humanitarian crises mingle with the ongoing destruction of the rainforest. The photographs raise awareness of the Amazon’s erosion due to climate change and human activity, while offering a glimpse into the modern everyday life of one of this vast region.

Forzare il paesaggio – z2o Sara Zanin Gallery
The research of Silvia Camporesi is articulated and developed through the suggestions of three Italian places which, due to their characteristics, respond to particular features of uncommon or unusual and in which belongs a specific forcing of the landscape. The illusory potential of photography, which marks the research of Silvia Camporesi (Forlì, 1973), is articulated and developed through the suggestions of three Italian places which, due to their characteristics, respond to particular features of uncommon or unusual and in which belongs a specific forcing of the landscape, a radical intervention that has changed the fate of the place in itself. Three environments documented through photographs, videos and archive materials that highlight the ambiguity between reality and fiction, the need to search for fragments of memories, the consequences of a certain unbridled anthropization and the curiosity that is hidden in contexts on the edges of normality. Utopian atmospheres suspended and crystallized, in which the landscape is artificially conceived from scratch, unhinged to avoid abandonment, or submerged as the only way to avoid oblivion and its disappearance from geographical maps. An alteration of the landscape that intersects with the possibilities of manipulation by photography and which leads the artist to question the infallibility of this medium to faithfully reproduce reality.
