About ‘Made of the sun‘:
I took these photos between 2016 and 2017 during two trips to Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean.
I tried to get away from the clichés of the place of vacation and uncontaminated natural places to look for the anthropical aspects of the landscape and return a representation of the contemporary Sicilian landscape.
