EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, titled "Mogadishu. Along the rocks, young Somalians swimming" takes us back to a different era in Somalia's history. Captured by renowned Italian photographer Folco Quilici in 1972, this image offers a glimpse into the vibrant coastal city of Mogadishu during a time of relative peace and tranquility. The scene unfolds along the rocky shoreline, where a group of youthful Somalians find respite from the scorching sun by immersing themselves in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Their joy is palpable as they frolic amidst gentle waves crashing against weathered rocks. Each figure exudes an infectious energy that transcends through time and space. Quilici's masterful composition draws our attention to both individual expressions and collective unity. The subjects' lithe bodies are frozen mid-motion, their limbs gracefully slicing through water or suspended momentarily in mid-air before plunging into its depths. Their carefree laughter seems to echo across generations, reminding us of universal human experiences that transcend cultural boundaries. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this photograph also serves as a poignant reminder of Somalia's rich cultural heritage and natural beauty before years of conflict ravaged the nation. It invites contemplation on what once was—a thriving seaside community where young people found solace amidst adversity. As we gaze upon this timeless snapshot frozen within silver gelatin print, let it transport us to an idyllic moment when innocence prevailed over turmoil; when Mogadishu was not defined by strife but rather celebrated for its resilient spirit and breathtaking landscapes. May it inspire hope for brighter days ahead while honoring those who have called this remarkable place home throughout history.
