Skrei – il viaggio

“Valentina Tamborra, a Milanese photojournalist with great sensitivity, builds a very special bridge between Italy and Norway using cod fishing as the link.

The photographer traces the journey made in the 15th century by the noble Venetian merchant Pietro Querini who, shipwrecked in the Lofoten Islands, discovers the hospitality of the fishermen and the merits of the fish he will export to his city.

The photographer does not just observe life on those islands but investigates, studies, shares stories, fatigue, and joys in a visual narrative that focuses on people and expands on stunning landscapes punctuated by the cod drying structures that her lens transforms into evocative installations.”
