Invisible Landscapes addresses the dangerous and partially unknown threat of illegal disposal of toxic waste. In the last two decades the province of Naples and Caserta, in southern Italy, have been used by criminal organisation as illegal landfill, and is estimated that have been disposed nearly twelve millions tons of industrial waste. As result of the environmental pollution incidence of pathologies such as unusual cancer diseases, leukaemia and autism have raised in the area. The landscape images document both the particular and familiar scenes where the invisible threat is taking place. The juxtaposition of ordinary- looking places with symbols of economic development is confronting the viewer with a threat that is both localised and globalised.
