From Cape Town to Marrakech, Vancouver to Moscow and more, people were required to stay indoors in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As many turned their households into impromptu workplaces, we were left wondering: how would you go on vacation within the narrow confines of your home? That question led us to launch a non-profit, creative initiative named “Vacanza in casa”, challenging a selected group of photographers who experienced lockdown from all corners of the world to grab their camera and go on holidays… at home.

From their own living rooms, windows and rooftops, they captured images that seem to encapsulate a unique and extraordinary moment in time. Each photograph is printed on a 15 x 19 cm postcard that describes where and when the picture was taken, along with a caption written by its author. Every photographer received copies of their postcard so they could share them with others as a souvenir of their unusual holidays.
A complete set including the fifteen postcards of “Vacanza in casa” is presented in a bespoke case featuring foil stamped and blind embossed details. The illustration depicts a romantic horizon whilst its bottom counterpart appears in the shape of a virus, acting as a distorted reflection of the sunset and expressing a sense of duality. The choice of contrasting materials and textures finds a balance in the combination of high gloss, varnished papers and uncoated boards with natural, tactile surfaces.

How can something absent be made visible? Parts Unknown is an online publication contemplating the ideas of missing and absence, featuring the work of 13 international artists.

The name Parts Unknown suggests an undetermined destination. In the context of forensics, it conjures images of unknown parts of bodies disfigured by acts of violence. A more liberating interpretation can be found in the work of the composer Richard Trythall, where parts are unknown not because they are missing, but so “fully integrated that it is impossible to subdivide into sections”. Parts go missing as they merge into a whole.

The stories in this collection testify to our common condition in the pandemic. We had to reinvent our artistic practices to adjust to the realities of being confined at home. In the online publication, you can toggle between views of each story, peering into the making of, the situations of our work and artistic experimentations.

We are facing an unprecedented crisis; yet, looking back in history, we have overcome such hardship before and now, every community around the world is once again, combating against these complex current issues. Photography cannot eradicate the virus nor poverty; It will not solve conflicts nor discriminations. But it has the power to visualise and reveal the voices unheard before. In this volume, 33 artists have come together to share the diverse issues explored through their practice along with their written responses. We can thus, travel around the world through images and survey the questions behind each of their works. We have no time to despair; this is the time to turn your eyes to photography.
