Whoever visits Naples remains captivated by the beauty and pathos of this city. Internationally recognized Dutch photographer Cuny Janssen’s (b. 1975) elegant new monograph on this elusive and contradictory city captures not only its rural and urban landscapes but also its people, specifically the controversial Roma community. Made over a two-year period, Janssen’s lush and poignant color images are affecting portrayals of the Roma children and the ghetto they call home. Since 2000, Janssen has traveled the world making portraits of children in their everyday environments and combining these with quiet documents of their surrounding landscape. For Janssen, the landscape and its people are equally present, the resourcefulness of nature and humanity equally fascinating and moving. Essays by Gabriele Conrath-Scholl, Patricia Pulles and Ferdinando Brandi.
