Due to the economy and wheather condition, Chilean lumberjacks today have to push themselves work into even more remote areas like the small islands of the archipelago of the southern fjords of the country. They have to face isolation , bad weather condition, scarcity of resourses, and have to enfront even difficult social relations. Physical problems are the normality in everyday life like psychological ones. A relatively present problem is depression. Dignity and willpower are fundamental properties. The images are in the form of complementary diptychs.

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made visual story teller. I like to relate stories about the human being and his capacities and social implications of his interventions in this world. Until now I brought my camera around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
