ARTIST'S BRIEF

Shot in Abruzzo, Italy in the abandoned village of Frattura Vecchia devastated by an earthquake in 1915, this series documents how the histories of migration to escape the poverty and hardships of central and southern Italian towns are deeply felt to this day. Focusing on the resilience of remote rural communities facing harsh conditions, adversity and the complexity of their relationship with the land, the series examines Italian heritage, the persistence of cultural traditions and national identity.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Fine art photographer Cindi Emond is a Montreal native. Best known for her dramatic portraits of people, cityscapes and landscapes, Emond has travelled Europe, Asia and beyond ever on the lookout for unconventional subjects and creating work that embodies vivid storytelling.

Emond initially moved to Toronto to do her BFAH training in photography, graphic art and art history at York University. Among her photographic influences are the street photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, and Vivian Maier and the work of Geoffrey James, photography laureate of her native city of Toronto.

An ex-pat who has resided in Rome, Italy for over 20 years, Emond is also a sommelier, runner, scuba diver and skier.
