Maltese Fragments is a photographic project that delves into the depths of Maltese identity through three images, displayed here in the gallery to capture the essence of the current reality of this fascinating island.
In the foreground, a man walks with the imposing man behind him Parliament House, a symbol of pride and dedication of Maltese workers. The image captures the strength and relentless energy of those building Malta’s future, reflecting the dynamism of the nation.
In the spotlight, a shot that embraces with sweetness and complexity the delicate issue of African refugees. The three young girls, laden with uncertainties for the future, embody the harsh reality of those seeking refuge. A moment captured with empathy and attention, inviting us to reflect on the global challenges that touch the heart of Malta.
On the right, romantic Malta, anchored to its roots. An antique car departs, driven by two elderly individuals carrying the history and tradition of this land. The image evokes a sense of nostalgia, celebrating the melancholic beauty of Malta’s roots in contrast to the modernity unfolding around.
These three photographs, placed together, create a balance of contrasts, a visual narrative of the multiple facets of Malta today.
Each image is a chapter, an opportunity for reflection on the complexity of this society.
