In prima linea. Donne fotoreporter in luoghi di guerra – perché ?
Dal 7 ottobre 2016 – 13 novembre 2016 Palazzo Madama di Torino ospiterà una mostra dove donne fotoreporter di guerra esporranno in propri lavori. E’ la prima volta che donne che fanno questo lavoro si uniscono in così grande numero e presentano al pubblico il propri lavori.
PECHE’ QUESTA MOSTRA ?
In prima linea. Donne fotoreporter in luoghi di guerra
Condividere le esperienze con le persone vicine e lontane porta ad un
arricchimento reciproco. E’ questa la convinzione che, un anno fa, ha fatto
nascere l’idea di questa mostra: riunire donne fotoreporter di tutto il mondo e
condividere il nostro lavoro con il pubblico.
L’attività del fotoreporter è ancora oggi, nell’immaginario di tutti, svolta
prevalentemente da uomini. Di fatto non è così. Ci sono, infatti, numerose donne
che affrontano lo stesso lavoro con grande forza e coraggio. Professioniste che
seguono azioni di guerra ed emergenze in tutto il mondo e che raccontano
attraverso i loro scatti le realtà difficili dei diversi continenti.
Dagli scatti delle 14 reporter coinvolte appare evidente la differenza di
approccio, legata alle diverse sensibilità individuali e culturali.
Alcune di noi mostrano la drammaticità della guerra con la propria tenerezza,
cogliendo attimi di vita quotidiana. Altre sono più “dure” e fanno vedere i lati
più feroci dei conflitti, ma tutte desideriamo raccontare, in modo professionale
e senza ipocrisia, la verità e i momenti difficili delle vite spezzate.

Panthou village, Aweil South county, Northern Bahr el Ghazal state, South Sudan October 14, 2015 Thirty-two year old Arek Nuoi, mother of four, is carried by her family members to a hospital bed at Panthou Primary Health Care Center, where she will receive urgent treatment for acute malaria. She arrived unconscious, transported in a chair her family had tied to the seat of a bicycle, which they pushed for one and a half hours from their home village of Maper. She had first shown signs of illness the previous night, complaining of headache and bodily pains. In the morning, she began to vomit and fainted. The health care center at Panthou is currently the only place where patients might be able to receive free treatment and medicine for malaria in the remote rural county of Aweil South. The center has only two staffs – both medical assistants – qualified to diagnose and treat patients, yet was treating approximately 150 malaria patients per day. In October 2015, the center had just received a supply of ACT oral medication for malaria, which they had been out of stock for two months. With the high number of patients, this new supply would be depleted in a week or two. The center also had a low stock of quinine, which they reserved for serious cases. There were no RDTs (rapid detection tests) in stock, so diagnosis could only be done clinically based on symptoms observed.
