ASCOSI LASCITI SICILIA – LIOTRUM
Liotrum is a project born from the passion for photography and exploration. We are three Sicilians, lifelong friends with the same interest: to rediscover time through forgotten, abandoned, destroyed places, in one word urbex (urban exploration).
The deterioration and abandonment are an example of the social and cultural unease that we live nowadays. Unease that comes from the incessant need to replace the old with the new even if still useful and functional. We have become slaves of consumerism and we have new needs originated by an incessant media and advertising bombardment. Our aim is not to educate, but to arouse interest and relive through imagination what has been there and now is forgotten and abandoned, using the emotions and the feelings that flow through the images.
