Calabria Upon Return by Alessandra Kila


2 in stock


Calabria Upon Return is a collection of poetic impressions in photographs and words gathered over a number of years on visits to the artist’s home-region of Calabria in southern Italy. The unbound book is held together, physically and metaphorically, by a poem that weaves through Alessandra’s melancholy portraits of friends and strangers and photographs of dry, sun drenched landscapes.

Alessandra’s beautiful photographs and frank text are a moving personal reflection on the physical and psychological state of abandonment Calabria finds itself in; – economically and culturally sidelined and subsequently left behind by the many who, like Alessandra Kila herself, have chosen to emigrate.


Alessandra Kila is an Italian born photographer, living and working in London, UK for over 15 years. She graduated from the University of Westminster with a Master’s Degree in Photographic Studies. Her work spans elaborate atmospheric still life and documentary projects.
