‘Post­card from par­adise’

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Post­card from par­adise is the ti­tle of a book that has just been pub­lished in Italy.

The book is by pho­tog­ra­pher Duška Maleše­vić and con­sists en­tirely of pho­tos taken in Malta.

The book, which was pre­sented in a book­shop in Rome yes­ter­day shows that Malta is not the par­adise as pre­sented in tourist brochures – the beach and the sea – but rather the stone walls and the angles of shade, coloured in yel­low and blue.

As Lavinia Col­lodel, who wrote the in­tro­duc­tion to the book and the ex­hi­bi­tion said, “We are faced with tra­di­tions and rit­u­als that make up the his­tory of the is­land, such as the old cart ruts and the pic­tures of saints which at­tracted the at­ten­tion of the artist, just like the old and faded Madon­nas one finds in Traste­vere.”
