Ganga – Photo exhibit by Antonio Di Canito

Italian photographer, Antonio Di Canito, recipient of the Arte Laguna Prize: Technymon ARTresidency, created these images during his month-long residency in India, where he explored Varanasi, Delhi and Puducherry (Pondicherry).
Taking off from the reverence that Indians have towards their holy waters, he has shot portraits of ordinary women immersed in the water, combining the motifs of mata and water. Says the artist: ‘Sometimes I like to include symbols in my work as seen in Renaissance paintings. The juxtaposition of woman and water, for me, represents birth, strength, power and love.’
Arte Laguna Prize created the residency in India to offer artists a new experience in professional growth and production, in an environment that is completely different from the traditional studio. The destination of India has been selected in collaboration with Italian company Technymon.
