Calabria Upon Return by Alessandra Kila is a collection of poetic impressions in photographs and words gathered over a number of years on visits to the artists home-region of Calabria in southern Italy. The unbound book is held together, physically and metaphorically, by a poem that weaves through Alessandra’s melancholy portraits of friends and strangers and photographs of dry, sun drenched landscapes.
Alessandra’s beautiful photographs and frank text are a moving personal reflection on the physical and psychological state of abandonment Calabria finds itself in; – economically and
culturally sidelined and subsequently left behind by the many who, like Alessandra Kila herself, have chosen to emigrate.
