EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Mogadishu. From the sky. Its very vast outlying area of shacks" transports us back to 1972, offering a unique perspective on Somalia's capital city. Taken by renowned photographer Folco Quilici, this aerial shot captures the sprawling outskirts of Mogadishu with its sea of makeshift dwellings. From high above, the viewer is granted an extraordinary vantage point that reveals the sheer expanse of these humble abodes stretching as far as the eye can see. The image showcases a stark contrast between urban development and poverty-stricken living conditions in this rapidly growing city. The shacks depicted in this photograph serve as a poignant reminder of the challenges faced by many residents during that era. They stand as testaments to resilience and resourcefulness amidst adversity, highlighting both human ingenuity and societal disparities. Quilici's masterful composition draws attention not only to the vastness but also to the intricate patterns formed by these clustered structures below. The interplay between light and shadow adds depth and texture to an otherwise flat landscape, enhancing our understanding of life within these communities. As we gaze upon this historical snapshot frozen in time, it prompts reflection on how much has changed since then while acknowledging that some struggles persist today. This photograph serves as a powerful visual document capturing a specific moment in Mogadishu's history—a testament to Quilici's ability to capture both beauty and truth through his lens. In preserving such images from Alinari's collection, we are reminded of photography’s role in documenting our shared human experience—shedding light on forgotten stories while inspiring empathy for those who have lived them firsthand.
