A photographic project documenting migratory movements towards the south of Africa

“It exists a submerged ocean of millions of human beings who are moving in search of a place in which to live. Some go north, towards Europe for example. With the Stimela project I have instead chosen to talk about the many forgotten people who head south. Opposite direction. Same motives. Same hopes. Same risks and difficulties. Same solitude.”.

With these words, the documentary photographer Luca Sola presents Stimela/Southern Africa Migration Project, launched in 2015 in order to realise a photographic mapping of the migratory phenomena towards the south of the African continent. Of the 16 countries included in the project, to date he has worked in seven: Malawi, South Africa, Lesotho, Mozambique, Tanzania, Congo DRC, Central African Republic. At the same time, Sola has launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to complete the photographic mapping of the remaining countries.
