A thematic selection of my recent photographic work.

THE NEW FACES OF AFRICA
It's only fair to share...
View Project

These are the photos featured in my solo exhibition “The New Faces of Africa,” which ran at the Hotel Boscolo in Milan from September to November, 2015.

“PRESS RELEASE: A unique journey that lasted five months, in the heart of Africa; a report on the trail of a proactive, vital and constantly evolving continent, able to look to the future; a photographer with a keen eye that captures the essence of the men, women and children of those lands and highlights their pride and desire to be leaders of a free and independent tomorrow.

Photographer and video reporter that has dedicated his profession to international investigative pieces and reports, Davide Scalenghe exhibits a selection of 20 photographs shot during the trip that has taken him to Morocco, Senegal, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, alongside Steve McCurry. The occasion was that of the documentary and photographic project that accompanied the shooting of the Lavazza calendar 2015 “The Earth Defenders” by the American photographer, a collaboration between Lavazza and Slow Food, and that Scalenghe turned into a film broadcast by Discover’s Real Time.

The main themes of Expo 2015 are those of the exhibition “The New Faces of Africa”: food and nutrition, basic human need, but also symbol of freedom where rural production is the sector that employs entire villages and that puts African men and women at the center of their own destiny.

Many such communities have grown considerably in recent years and have today achieved full autonomy: farmers are able to sell their product directly, without the intervention of intermediaries, increasing the direct gain for the maintenance of their household.

In partnership with LAVAZZA.”

As a result of my work experiences, my interest in human trafficking and child exploitation intensified, and in November 2014, I traveled to Thailand, which is another of the world’s major hubs for child trafficking for sexual purposes, on an independent research trip. With the assistance of Save the Children, The United Nations Population Fund, and the NGO Compassion Italia, I interviewed and photographed former victims of child trafficking and the various social workers, health-care professionals, and volunteers helping them.

Backstage shots from my documentary “Casa do Menor: The Other Face of Brazil”, which focused on the protests on the streets of Brazil in the summer of 2013. The documentary featured the stories of abused and marginalized youth in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro and Fortaleza. It was shot with the support of the Brazilian NGO Casa do Menor, which cares for 2000 children per year, many of whom suffer from drug addiction and are coerced into prostitution.
