Families in Europe
In the Shadow

Four men and women photographers from Albania, Belarus, Italy and Germany travelled to some of the socially and economically weakest and most neglected areas of the European continent. Their aim was to come into contact with people who lives there so they can make their voice heard through photos, videos, stories. Wherever they are, the local populations live in isolation, abandoned and with no prospects…in the shadows. What stories did they gather? This site documents their journeys acting as a kind of logbook. Their photographic works are presented in an international touring exhibition starting in Milan and travelling to Rom, Minsk, Tirana and Halle. 

The Photographers

Each photographer will travel in their own country plus one of the other three so as to have a change of perspective. Jutta Benzenberg and Mila Teshaieva are going to Albania and Germany while Andrei Liankevich and Livio Senigalliesi will be in Italy and Belarus.
