Giovanni Savino: Thirty-Three Doors

The House of the Sun

I was first introduced to Giovanni Savino’s work when jurying for a New Orleans Photo Alliance competition. I am proud to publish a selection from this lovely series.

Giovanni goes on to say “Unfortunately I haven’t been able to raise any real money or find anyone to finance the restoration of the building yet, but as I left Georgette inside her mastodon, crumbling home, delightedly immersed in admiring and enjoying what she already called ‘her’ book, I felt I had achieved something important.”

“And indeed, Georgette’s happiness felt like one very good reason to keep doing what I had done for the past thirty years: tell stories worth telling, through my images.”
