On the Identity of a Tomato Picker
2014

text by Alessia Venditti

Puglia, la quotidiana lotta dei raccoglitori di pomodori per il rispetto della propria dignità e la sopravvivenza della personale identità.
“Ho lavorato su questa serie con l’intenzione di raccontare una storia in un modo che avrebbe rispettato il diritto di queste persone ad auto-rappresentare se stessi”. Dario Bosio ci fornisce un racconto per immagini atipico e al contempo reale, che tenta di restituire un concetto di sopravvivenza mediante il lavoro, garante di quella identità scarsamente tutelata dalla cronaca ordinaria.
L’Africa è presente in questo lavoro tanto quanto i campi, tanto quanto quei sorrisi dalla fisionomia celata, quanto un pomodoro e una carta di identità. On the Identity of a Tomato Picker non è il tentativo di ridurre il tutto a mera denuncia, ma la prova che si possa spezzare una catena di comunicazione incurante della personalità presente dietro ciascuna di quelle anime esauste.

Apulia, the everyday fight of tomato pickers for the respect of their dignity and for the survival of their personal identity.
“I worked on this series with the purpose of telling a story that could respect the right of these people to self-represent themselves”. Dario Bosio shows us a story built through images which is atypical but real at the same time and which tries to show the concept of survival through work as warrantor of that identity barely protected by ordinary news.
In this work Africa is present as well as fields, smiles with their hidden physiognomy, a tomato and an identity card. On the Identity of a Tomato Picker is not an attempt to reduce everything to mere denunciation, but it proves that the communication chain can break, unconcerned about the personality hidden behind all those exhausted souls.
