In Berengo Gardin’s view,being a photographer means playing an observer’s role and adopting a sympathetic listening stance in the face of reality,a characteristic that he shares with all of the great reporter photograhers of the 20th century. And indeed in recent years he has always been in the front line in an effort to tell us what needed changing and what needed celebrating.
As a photographer he is devoted to recording reality in the round,leaving no stone unturned. He took this photos between 2013 and 2014, portraying the ordinary life in Venice: Large cruise ships cross the lagoon. She was troubled by visual pollution.
