Softcover in transparent printed envelope. 120 numbered copies + XXX special edition with an original signed and numbered print, design by Fabio Tasca/Artphilein Editions. Text by Nicole de Pontcharra.

„The photographic project contained in the book Yemen Rihla is a testimony to a not particularly tumultuous period of the tormented Arab state, placed halfway between the reunification and the Arab Spring and the subsequent bloody civil war.
The photographs were taken with a medium-sensitivity film with a slight grain that emphasizes the rough surfaces that characterize the harsh Yemeni environment.
The choice of the landscape format, combined with the frequent use of wide-angle lenses, arises from the need to highlight the vastness of the landscape while trying to melt in it the human figures that often appear truncated, cut and partial.

"Fabio Tasca excludes the spectacular and focuses instead on grasping elements that attract his eye and his sensibility. He immobilises them. Out of all these subtle approaches emerges the image of Yemen: a country looms from secrecy with its shadows and its light, stirring the desire to go even further to meet it." (Nicole de Pontcharra)
