Fantasy atmospheres. Men and women shapes getting lost in wide spaces, lands almost untouched by man. This is one of the poorest place in the world : the rural area between Malawi and Mozambique. Living in the poorest countrysides, it firstly means not being able to choose your own destiny and living cut off from the rest of the world. With these pictures I tried to present rural poverty from a different angle, far from the deep poverty of slums and far from stereotypes.
This series is part of a documentary work upon rural poverty, in collaboration with head teacher Pasquale De Muro and the Master in Human Development and Food Security of Roma3 university.
