Overview

Their names are Lewis Hine, Sebastião Salgado, Eugene Smith, Tom Stoddart, and Igor Kostin. They tackled hunger, drought, ecological catastrophes, HIV. They are documentary photographers, authors, and journalists who decided to aim their cameras at a series of unknown stories that had to be revealed, told, understood, and denounced.

Our Brothers’ keepers gathers twenty protagonists and twenty exemplary stories of documentary photography. Each one is presented by an introductory text, and a selection of photographs conveys the sense and value of these extremely important reports. It is a peculiar way to track the history of our days, as well as the one of photography, of those concerned authors who wanted to show things that had to be corrected, who wanted to show things that had to be appreciated.
