The exhibition will provide glimpses into the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable and isolated indigenous peoples.

The humanitarian tragedies stay shortly under the international spotlights, just for a quick glance from the media, some of which are often driven by market logic. What is important today fades out to become non-newsworthy tomorrow. 
Away from the lenses, the drama remains, returning to oblivion only to give room to what has just happened. Yet a large number of people, most of whom hardly ever make it to the news in spite of the marginalization, poverty and discrimination that they endure on a daily basis, are so excluded from sight that they seem to be invisible. They are the relentless workers who survive hardship; the young girls forced to become prostitutes; the babies whose birth were never registered and therefore do not exist, do not attend school nor have access to health care and are not accounted for by the official statistics; the men and women of ethnic minorities, discriminated against, who resist or succumb to the logic of power that takes away their homes, the land of their ancestors, their places of worship and remembrance; the sons and daughters of people who, for several generations, have always been dealt with as someone’s slaves. “Invisible people” project by Luca Catalano Gonzaga gathers photo reportage on men, women and children whose lives have been forgotten amidst old and new forms of poverty and exploitation.
