Gianluca Calise

Gianluca Calise, My Mother’s Empty Flat, 2014-15.

Contributor Elisabeth Biondi writes about  the series Waiting, in which Gianluca Calise documented his mother over a two-year period during which she was in the hospital and, for part of that time, in a coma. “Taking pictures of his mother was as much a visual documentation as it was an exploration of life in this part of Italy, of his mother’s love, and of the role of religion,” writes Biondi.
