ROSELENA RAMISTELLA, ITALY

EUROPE: NEXT GENERATION

Clean water, stopping climate change, conservation of biodiversity and forests, sustainable production, preference for renewable energies – these are some of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that aim to improve living conditions by 2030. In her photo series with children, Italian photographer Roselena Ramistella has freely and associatively interpreted these themes.

Because it’s the children who will have to live with the consequences of our current lifestyle. The children, as Ramistella states, whose hopes we must not disappoint and whose prospects we must not darken.
