Alex Paganelli’s POSTER

“One country, ten destinations” is the name of the report by Alex Paganelli, which includes the photograph that became one of the 10 winning proposals of Open Call 2020. It was in Tarrafal, Santiago Island, in Cape Verde, that the photographer portrayed the usual disorder around a fishing boat that has just returned from the sea.
