What connects boxing and photography? People and their stories of victories and losses, low blows, terrible fails, and knockdowns that you never imagined you would recover from. But you do. And it's usually with the help of sports and/or art, through which you channel your own story so that you can bare it more easily.
Phelia Barouh tells her story in aesthetic shots that speak beautifully and boldly about the path, the meeting, the parting, all in an unknown city in an old island, which lower her guard when she had raised it the highest she ever has.
You can also recognise yourself in Phelia's story. Discover this during the solo photography exhibition Palermo. Box. Me., which in addition to a series of photographs also includes a presentation of a photobook.
