The photographic project contained in the book Yemen Rihla is a testimony to a not particularly tumultuous period of the tormented Arab state, placed halfway between the reunification and the Arab Spring and the subsequent bloody civil war.
The photographs were taken with a medium-sensitivity film with a slight grain that emphasizes the rough surfaces that characterize the harsh Yemeni environment.
The choice of the landscape format, combined with the frequent use of wide-angle lenses, arises from the need to highlight the vastness of the landscape while trying to melt in it the human figures that often appear truncated, cut and partial.
