Most Were Silent: Vittorio Mortarotti & Anush Hamzehian

“In Most Were Silent, the synesthesia prysm, the sensory phenomenon that suggests a contamination of the senses is used to magnify the depth of perception and to demonstrate that History is a process of stratification and absorption that can be modified through individual and collective filters. However, no contamination is risk-proof, especially when it comes to modifying the common memory. That is exactly the strength of this book, besides the disquieting beauty and poetry of the photos, it succeeds in creating a new perspective in the narrative and memory of past events, without losing the main purpose of each narrative, which is not to retain the truth but to maintain integrity intact. “ [from the text by Stefano Riba]
