Jean-Marc Caimi – Daily Bread (sign.)
In ‘Daily Bread’ multi-award winning French-Italian documentary photographer Jean-Marc Caimi turns the camera on his own life, sharing intimate moments in a visual diary that scratches at the surface of reality to reveal hidden truths, sexual tensions and the unseen beauty found in everyday moments. Choosing to shoot ‘Daily Bread’ in black and white Caimi returns to his roots, to the reasons why he became a photographer, using shades of light to create allegorical associations and compelling narratives.
Sex, food, nature, the city where I live, my son, relationships, friends, family, even fleeting encounters, these moments enrich me as a human being. They are archetypal, belonging to a common DNA, the essence of our very biology. They are at the root of my existence, hovering in the pictures of my life.
"Sometimes there is tranquility and safety. Other times there is flux and danger. Discovery can be euphoric, but even when knowledge brings pain and discomfort I welcome my vulnerability as an emotional lash to arouse the soul.” Jean-Marc Caimi
