Photo Culture #7: Mario Giacomelli

In this journey towards the rediscovery of the land, Mario Giacomelli, one of the greatest Italian photographers, gave the best of his capacity for evocative narration. His series La buona terra (“The Good Land”), created between 1964 and 1967, tells us about the peasant world by introducing us to the house of a large patriarchal family, revealing its customs, traditions, children’s games, hard work, discovering at the same time the spiritual side of those who, working the land, remained close to their roots, respecting the origin and sense of humanity.
