EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Mogadishu. From the sky. The port" transports us back to Somalia in 1972, offering a unique perspective of this vibrant city from above. Taken by renowned photographer Folco Quilici, this image captures the essence and grandeur of Mogadishu's bustling port. As our eyes wander across the photograph, we are immediately struck by the sheer magnitude of activity taking place below. The sprawling harbor stretches out before us like a tapestry woven with ships and boats of all sizes, each one representing a story waiting to be told. The deep blue waters glisten under the golden rays of sunlight, creating an enchanting contrast against the earthy tones of buildings and streets. The cityscape itself is a testament to Mogadishu's rich history and cultural heritage. Tall minarets rise majestically into the sky, their intricate designs standing as architectural marvels that have withstood the test of time. Traditional houses with flat roofs dotting the landscape remind us that beneath this modern facade lies a city deeply rooted in its past. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this photograph also serves as a window into daily life within Mogadishu during that era. Tiny figures can be seen going about their routines on land and sea - merchants unloading goods from vessels while locals navigate through narrow alleyways filled with market stalls brimming with colorful produce. Quilici's masterful composition allows us to appreciate both the beauty and complexity inherent in Mogadishu's maritime hub. It invites contemplation about how trade connects people across borders and cultures while reminding us that every corner holds stories waiting to be discovered. This remarkable piece offers more than just an aerial view; it encapsulates an entire world within its frame – one where history intertwines seamlessly with contemporary life at one of Africa's most important ports: Mogadishu.
