The Dream has been selected among the Best Photobooks of 2016 by TIME Magazine.
Selected by TIME Photo Editor Andrew Katz: ” The old adage ” don’t judge a book by its cover” doesn’t work for Fabio Bucciarelli’s “The Dream”.It’s constructed from a life jacket – down to the buckle – and impossible to ignore. To move on, you must unfasten it, just as the refugee who wore it on a treacherous sea would have done. What follows is an intimate exploration of modern migration, made over five years and across 11 countries. The emotions of the arrivals, the humility of being scanned and tagged, the exhaustion of the journey behind and the pain of the uncertainty ahead. Whereas the lack of captions allows the pictures to come together seamlessly, the use of blank pages – both black and white – offers important moments of reflection and reckoning. The people in these pages have been stripped of their humanity in the most public of ways. That is certain. This careful, considered book helps to restore it.”
