Butterflies / Chapter 4

Il Reportage and Officine Fotografiche Roma present Butterflies/ Chapter 4, the first solo show by Swiss photographer Scott Typaldos, the winner of Il Reportage Photojournalism Award 2016.

The jury has declared the photographic project by Scott Typaldos as the award’s winner for the following reasons: «For the determination and sensibility through which since 2011 Scott Typaldos works on Butterflies, his project about a complex theme such as the mental illness worldwide. Butterflies / Chapter 4, that has been awarded by our jury as the winner of Il Reportage Photojournalism Award, was shot in a center for mental illness in Indonesia. This work brings to light – thanks to an evocative photographic language - the physical and mental torture, the segregation, the lack of care and total abandonment to which patients are subjected. The image of the butterfly, chosen by the author as symbol of his long-term project, indicates the longing for freedom and the fragility of the soul besieged by fear of these men and these women reduced in chains in our societies».

The exhibition will consist of twenty-five photographs from the fourth chapter of Butterflies that, after the chapters realized in West Africa, Kosovo and Bosnia, has been realized in Indonesia. Through a sensitivity next to the subjects, this intimate work of strong emotional impact brings to light the daily living conditions of mental institution patients, often forced in chains. Images that seem an invitation to empathize with the portrayed women and men, a project that does not want to give answers but rather ask questions.

The exhibit is curated by Valentina Piccinni and will be inaugurated on Tuesday September 27th, 2016, at 7 pm, at Officine Fotografiche Roma.
