The School Bus
Posted By: tasca71, 01-07-2016, 05:45 AM

This composite shot is part of portfolio named "The Wasted Future". It is a post production blend of two different exposure, one for the garbage truck in the street and another one for the children.

Project Description:

The wasted future
Iím shocked to see how things are thrown away, how in Italy enthusiasm, passion and energy of youngest generations are wasted. What I show here are digitally manipulated images of paradoxical ordinary life of children around bins and rubbish. As children are our future, and insane consumption is our present, my images are visual metaphors of a country that disposes too nonchalantly of its past, that has lost any sense of development, that doesnít offer to youngest generations any chance of personal or social fulfillment: a country that does not invest in education, culture and in research throws away its own future. My work aims at stimulating a debate over whatís intrinsically wrong in such a social organization, and at promoting a new way of thinking to build a better future for our children.
