Lecture – Università degli studi di Milano. Sostenibilità nel prisma della fotografia

I am invited to give a lecture about “Sostenibilità nel prisma della fotografia” on Monday the 12th of November 2018 at the Università degli studi di Milano.

I will talk about my book Recycle and the themes of waste, sustainability and recycling. I captured a variety of situations revealing the face of humanity behind the waste it produces, recycles or has to endure.
