DALLA LUNA AL VENTO
Luciano del Castillo, equipped with the inseparable camera, likes to call himself a walker, a drifter with a gypsy soul. This explains the choice to use the poetry of Federico García Lorca, poet of Andalusian and gypsy cultures, both for the title of the book and for the leitmotif of the photos inside. The moon, changeable, bewitching, associated with birth and madness, has always been a female archetype. The wind, divine spirit in the creation of the world, together with the sun influences the fertility of the soil and brightens the sky after the storm. In the photographs of Luciano del Castillo the woman is represented immersed in these two elements and in different dimensions of life: poverty, migration, war, oppression, but also childhood, motherhood, work, empowerment, integrity, dignity, care and dreams. This book tells the story of women, famous and not, whose passions and their efforts have left and leave an indelible mark.
