"Mafia, mafia, mafia... Let's stop talking about the mafia. I can not take it anymore. Let's talk about redemption, beauty, future. "
LETIZIA BATTAGLIA. The photographer who captured and shot the mob like no one else. This is her story.
Being a woman was not exactly an advantage to be respected as a photographer. The police didn´t put things simple at the time of going to the scenes of the murders for being a woman, but she did not stop in her attempt to make a name for herselve in the world of photography and be respected for her work.
“I LEARNED TO LIVE WITH THE FEAR THAT I WILL BE KILLED. THEY HAVE BROKEN ME CAMERAS, SPIDED ME, INSULTED AND SENT ANONYMOUS LETTERS THREATENING DEATH. BEING A LITTLE CRAZY HELPS YOU TO BE BRAVE AND I SEE THAT I AM VERY BRAVE."
The book "LETIZIA BATTAGLIA, Photography as a Life Choice" We find it a marvel in terms of layout, finish and content.
