Ferdinando Scianna
Italian, b.1946

Ferdinando Scianna, who was born in Bagheria, Sicily, spent the first 22 years of his life in Sicily and became a specialist in the culture of the island which is the subject of several of his books, from Feste Religiose in Sicilia, 1965, a Prix Nadar winner, to his magnum opus Les Siciliens, 1977.

In a style akin to that of the Italian neo-realists of the 1940s, using a dramatic, baroque light and dark shadows, Scianna depicts a region in the grip of powerful traditions and religious culture, but at the same time able to assimilate modernity.
