Saluti da PINETAMARE

This is a book about my home, about the place of my youth, what has happened to it. Saluti da PINETAMARE now is a dummy book. I have to print it in 1000 copies. This book can be published with your support. Support this project so that does not happen again.

Saluti da PINETAMARE

<p> "<strong>Saluti da PINETAMARE</strong>" is a photobook dummy that I want to turn in a book edition of 1000 copies. It is completely selfpublished.  "Saluti da PINETAMARE" shortlisted to the <strong>DUMMY AWARD 2012 at 5th International Photobook Festival in Kassel</strong> and was exhibited at Le Bal (Paris), at MIA Fair (Milan), at s.t. galleria (Rome) and at f/stop Photofestival (Leipzig).  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/book-cover.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/book-cover.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> These photographs were taken during several trips <strong>between 2009 and 2011 along 54 km of National Road No 7 Quater called “Domitiana”</strong>, in the towns of Licola, Lago Patria, Ischitella, Villaggio Coppola-Pinetamare, Castel Volturno, Pescopagano, Mondragone and crossing the Mediterranean coast of the provinces of Caserta and Naples, in Italy.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/sdp-map.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/sdp-map.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> The town of Castel Volturno counts 24000 inhabitants and 1900 are regular immigrants: 4000 people are registered as unemployed. It’s estimated there are over 10000 illegal immigrants. It’s one of the main drug marketplace in the Campania region: cobret, heroin, crack, cocaine and marijuana. Here, and not in Nigeria, was born the Nigerian Mafia.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The province of Caserta, is among Italy’s most polluted. The air, the ground, the rivers and the sea are clearly polluted.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/7cover.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/7cover.jpg"></a></p> <p>   <a href="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/5spiaggia.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/5spiaggia.jpg"></a></p> <p>   <a href="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/4duogolf.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/4duogolf.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> The way kids are growing up, is not the way I did anymore. This project is about my home, about the place of my youth, what has happened to it: I tried to explore the changes in the scenery of my childhood memories by making them collide with reality. The reality of the human direction that is so far from a better future that leaves its heirs more than it has received from its fathers.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/6cavallo.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://www.salvatoresantoro.net/kkbb/6cavallo.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/49769725" width="500"></iframe> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Book informations:</strong></p> <p> Photographs and texts: Salvatore Santoro </p> <p> Book project: 3/3 </p> <p> Format: softcover + dust jacket </p> <p> Size: book 290 x 220 mm \\ inserts 175 x 116 mm</p> <p> Total number of pages: 192 \\ 160 + 32 (4 8-pages inserts) [*]</p> <p> Number of photographs: 89 \\ 73 + 16 [*]</p> <p> Print: Offset Paper: Arctic Paper, Munken Lynx 130gr</p> <p> Languages: italian and english</p> <p> [* +/- 4]</p> <p>  </p> <p> As you can see in the first video, in the book there are four booklet: this a technical solution to put a second layer story. There are pictures of my friends and my childhood.</p> <p> The dustjacket cover is a "french" type: a big photo folded on a cardborad cover.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>ITALIANO</strong></p> <p> Queste fotografie sono state scattate tra il 2009 e il 2011, lungo i 54 km della Strada Statale n. 7 Quater “Domitiana”, nelle città di Licola, Lago Patria, Ischitella, Villaggio Coppola-Pinetamare, Castel Volturno, Pescopagano, Mondragone e attraversando la costa mediterranea delle province di Caserta e Napoli.</p> <p>  </p> <p> La sola città di Castel Volturno conta 24000 abitanti e 1900 sono immigrati regolari. Si stimano oltre 10000 immigrati clandestini. 4000 persone sono registrate come disoccupate. E’ uno dei principali del mercati di droga in Campania: cobret, eroina, crack, cocaina e marijuana. Qui, e non in Nigeria, è nata la Mafia Nigeriana.</p> <p> La provincia di Caserta, è tra le più inquinate d’Italia. L'aria, il terreno, i fiumi e il mare sono inquinati in modo evidente. </p> <p> Il modo in cui i ragazzi stanno crescendo che non è più il modo in cui sono cresciuto io. Questo progetto riguarda la mia casa, i luoghi della mia infanzia, riguarda quello che è successo in questi posti.</p> <p>  </p> <p> © 2012 text and photographs</p>

Allocation of funds

<p> I have already covered the costs of travel, fixer, equipment and the production of the photo-book dummy.  </p> <p> The publication is already 80% realized.</p> <p> The next steps to complete the production are the final postproduction for offset print, the printing and finishing. Now I have € 4000 and<strong> I need € 8000</strong> to reach the total amount of € 12000 in order to cover the publishing costs:</p> <p> - € 500 for postproduction of CMYK files for offset print;</p> <p> - € 11000 for 1000 copies offset printing;</p> <p> - € 500 for publishing support.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The first big help is to share this page and this project to all people you know. </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>ITALIANO</strong></p> <p> Ho già coperto i costi di viaggio, attrezzature, produzione del dummy. Il prossimo passo è la produzione dell'edizione in mille copie con stampa offset. Io ho da parte € 4000 e <strong>mi servono € 8000</strong> per raggiungere il totale di € 12.000 per completare il fotoritocco, la stampa offset e la rilegatura:</p> <p> - € 500 per la postproduzioe dei file CMYK;</p> <p> - € 11000 per la stampa offset di 1000 copie;</p> <p> - € 500 per supporto editoriale.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Chi è ineteressato al libro mi aiuterebbe molto iniziando a preordinarlo da questo sito.
