This series of photographs by Marco Ambrosi uses photography as a social tool. By photographing African immigrants in Italy, he aims to give them the respect they deserve. As a group of people rendered largely invisible by the Italian public, he feels that photographing people like this brings them to the fore and humanises them – highlighting similarities between cultures.
They’re beautiful images and are art-directed beautifully too, with muted brown and cream tones. Great images for a great cause, what more could you want?
