The Iron Fan is an ongoing collaborative project with the writer and poet Marco Mantello (1972 Rome, lives in Berlin). The series is set in the Eurafrican territories of Almeria, Melilla and Nador and follows the footsteps of Zac 10, an European citizen of North African origin whose life is marked by the experience of the border, cultural, historical and geographical. The project enacts a dialogue between photography and literature intertwining the present and past of the places with the private memory of the protagonist.
