Chiara Tocci

Dressing up in the Women's Prison, from 'Life After Zog'

Course: BA Documentary Photography, University of Wales Newport

 

'Life After Zog and Other Stories' is a portrait of Albania 20 years after the collapse of Communism, as the country tries to throw off its past and move forward. It shows a country on the verge of change, a candidate to the European Union, longing for what is new and modern.

Tocci visited the countryside of the Northern mountains, the cities, schools and prisons: discovering an enchanted place inhabited by people who ‘share the land with their ancestors’ ghosts.’ A place where time and history often seem to have abruptly stopped, but blood feuds and melancholic disillusions persist.
