As the first book released by the Los Angeles based studio Noua Unu and the debut publishing effort of Assortment Press, the images inside Ragazzi meander around the camaraderie of men and the unspoken magic of the far-southern region of Salento, Italy. Through a gentle gaze, the photographs explore the relationship between old and young, rugged and refined, grounding themselves in a blissful humility. Noua Unu presents us an intelligent look at classically composed images in a sun-bleached daydream. Ripe with the smells of sap and sea, Ragazzi sits in the warmth and poise of its beautiful subjects.
