EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph titled "Mogadishu. 'URI', Somalian fishing boats breaking over the wave of the coral reef, for the open sea" transports us to a moment frozen in time. Taken by renowned photographer Folco Quilici in 1972, this image captures the essence of Somalia's coastal city, Mogadishu. In this striking composition, we witness a fleet of traditional Somali fishing boats known as "URI" battling against nature's forces. The powerful waves crash against the sturdy vessels as they navigate through treacherous coral reefs towards the vastness of the open sea. It is an awe-inspiring sight that epitomizes both resilience and determination. Quilici's masterful use of contrast adds depth and drama to this scene. The dark shadows cast by towering waves create a sense of urgency while highlighting every detail on these magnificent wooden boats. Each vessel appears weathered yet strong, bearing witness to countless journeys undertaken by courageous fishermen who rely on their catch for sustenance and livelihood. The timeless quality of this photograph allows us to reflect upon Somalia's rich maritime heritage and its deep connection with the oceanic world surrounding it. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, Quilici's work serves as a poignant reminder of humanity's unwavering spirit in facing adversity head-on. As we gaze at this remarkable print from Alinari, we are transported back in time to an era when life was simpler but challenges were no less daunting. We find ourselves captivated by these brave fishermen defying nature’s obstacles with unyielding determination – a testament to human resilience that transcends borders and generations alike.
