MIMMO JODICE

THE MILITANT YEARS

A hidden facet of the the internationally renowned photographer Mimmo Jodice will be revealed at Foto/Industria : his politically motivated work, captured in Italy in the 1970’s . He put his expert eye at the service of the militant leftist press to show current working conditions, especially child labour, which was very common at the time. Today these photographs shot in Naples shock the viewer and demonstrate that photography can be a militant witness, playing an important role in workers’ struggles.
