Filled with more than 100 gorgeously shot photographs and introduced by texts from Jean Blanchaert, Roberto Mutti and the photographer himself, Stefano Benazzo: Wrecks documents shipwrecks from around the world, offering a visual testimony to maritime history and the inevitability of decline.
Benazzo’s powerful and alluring images of these magnificent sea cathedrals — shot over the course of decades along coastlines around the globe — resurrect the memories of the sailors and immigrants they once carried. Benazzo’s camera reveals their beauty, history and perseverance of these seemingly bleak objects, creating a book that ultimately is about hope.
