This is a selection of photos taken by Andrea Pistolesi over the ten years spent in Asia, shooting stories for magazines and books. Ten years when he lived in the continent, facing the dramatic changes that modernization was introducing at an unprecedented pace. In the end this is not just a photographic gallery: is a document of the evolution that the continent has experienced in a crucial period of human history. The introduction and notes by Massimo Morello, the journalist that produced the “written side” of the stories, is the ideal completion of the whole work.
Above all it is a "work in progress", a collection of images that I count to update and expand as this work continues.
After little more then two years the nation is rebuilding itself with resilience and courage, counting on people so used to hardships to make the process apparently swift.
The images reveal the beauty and vitality of this country, it’s contrasts, spirituality and immense culture.
This is a dedication to Nepal and it’s people.
An extensive photo gallery and a precise archaeological presentation are a pleasant introduction to one of the best preserved areas of Burma, the modern Myanmar.
