Over 300 newly published works by Letizia Battaglia (born 1935), one of Italy’s most celebrated photographers, are collected in this major new survey spanning the entirety of her 30-year photographic career. In photographs and contact prints from Battaglia’s own archive, the book offers a comprehensive review of her work’s civically engaged model for photography, typified by her iconic depictions of political protests and Mafia killings in her native Palermo in Sicily, taken while Battaglia was employed as photography director at the leftist daily newspaper L’Ora.
