Italian photographer Cesare Fabbri captures the rugged landscape of Sardinia, dotted with thousands of nuraghi, mysterious Bronze Age stone ruins, ancient settlements, sometimes resembling old beehives.
AboutSulla terra leggeri (Lightly on Earth) it’s a path, a passage, a journey that I’m following using a large format camera, photographing around Sardinia. The particular geographic location, the peculiar geology, the largest island of the Mediterranean sea, still preserves on its territory an historic, original cultural and natural heritage that is barely touched. These remains exist side by side with a complicated militar and political history, made of invasions suffered over the centuries, generated a particular spirit in its inhabitants, defined by the Sardinian archeologist Giovanni Lilliu as 'la costante resistenziale sarda' (the constant sardinian resistance).
Cesare Fabbri was born in Ravenna, Italy, 1971.
He studied photography with Italo Zannier and urban planning at the IUAV in Venice. He had a solo show at the Foundation A Stichting, Brussels in 2017. In 2007 he took part in the Stuttgart Biennale of Photography and Architecture and was shortlisted for the prize Atlante Italiano 007 organised by Museo MAXXI, Roma. In 2004 he was awarded the RAM prize and a HERA study grant.
Together with Silvia Loddo he founded ‘Osservatorio Fotografico’ in Ravenna in 2009, an experimental platform for research on photography. Fabbri’s first monograph ‘The Flying Carpet’ was published by Mack Books in 2017.
