Hotel Immagine: the book

On Friday June 5h, 2015 starting from 7 p.m. at the center of photography Spazio Labo’, in Bologna, the Italian photographer Simone Donati will present his newly published photo book Hotel Immagine, an heterogeneous portrait of the contemporary Italian imaginary from its myths, icons and places.
Going from politics to religion, from music and sport to television, between 2009 and 2015 Simone Donati, a member of the collective TerraProject Photographers, crossed his country in search of myths and icons of the Italian contemporary imaginary. This project provides a glimpse into the Italian society with an ironic but also purely documentary look.
The resulting book contains a selection of 48 images with the addition of phrases taken from Facebook groups of the various situations photographed. There is also an afterword by writer Quit the Doner, which besides giving an opinion on the subject also comments on the Facebook phrases.
