Presentation by Sturm & Drang:

"Inspired by his travels and short trips along the Italian coastline with fellow photographer Luigi Ghirri in the late 1970's, French photographer Claude Nori decided in 1982 to record images around Italian beaches. He was interested in capturing the annual rituals of this uniquely Mediterranean passage of time. An atmosphere of joyful beach games, first kisses, swimming and the joyful exuberance of youthful cliques seeking to experience everything life has to offer in those short few weeks during summer.

« Mothers begged me to take photos of their daughters, who asked me in turn to shoot a portrait of their boyfriends to whom they dedicated their beauty to. I imagined love stories between boys and girls who just wanted to be filmed and photographed together, between fiction and reality, lovers for a day or a summer. »
