EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph titled "Mogadishu. The return of the fishermen to the beach" taken by renowned photographer Folco Quilici in 1972, we are transported to a moment frozen in time on the shores of Somalia's capital city. The image captures a scene filled with raw authenticity and profound simplicity. As the sun begins its descent, casting a golden glow over the horizon, weary fishermen make their way back to shore after a long day at sea. Their weathered faces tell stories of resilience and determination as they carry their nets and boats onto land. The composition is strikingly beautiful, showcasing an interplay between light and shadow that adds depth to every element within the frame. The silhouettes of these hardworking men against the vast expanse of sand create a sense of solitude amidst nature's grandeur. Quilici's choice to capture this particular moment speaks volumes about his ability to find beauty in everyday life. Through his lens, he immortalizes not only the physical act of fishing but also encapsulates an entire way of life deeply rooted in tradition and sustenance. This photograph serves as both a historical document and an artistic masterpiece—a testament to Somalia's rich maritime heritage while offering us a glimpse into daily existence during that era. It reminds us that even amidst challenging times, there is always hope for renewal as these resilient fishermen return home with their bountiful catch. Quilici's work has always been celebrated for its ability to evoke emotions through visual storytelling, capturing fleeting moments that resonate with viewers across generations. In "Mogadishu: The Return of the Fishermen to the Beach" he once again succeeds in transporting us beyond borders and timeframes—immersing us into an intimate connection with humanity itself.
