‘Stelle Del Mare’ – The people, they arrive to you early seeking your silky salty comfort. Some are old men who trace the sign of the cross on their chests before submerging into you, some are looking to you to hide their inhibitions and sexual gamings, some are drunks seeking solace from an all-nighter. You do not discriminate and welcome all.

I have spent years on the road attempting to tell the stories of others. In this time of COVID ‘lockdowns’ and seemingly unending up-endings of our lives, I have needed to slip into a more contemplative state; looking for a less literal and more visceral form of storytelling. This new ongoing series of ‘postcards’ from our Malta window and close by, onto the Mediterranean sea was born of the subconscious – a speechless full moon that nudges my conscious minds-eye to react – but whatever story there might be in the frame, is open to imagination, interpretation and meditation… Jason Floriophotographer/filmmaker

‘Destination Europe’ prints by Jason Florio – ready to ship to ICP, NYC

‘Destination Europe’ award-winning photography© Jason Florio

‘Destination Europe’ ICP- With great thanks, Helene Greenberg-Wyman Contemporary, New York. A selection of 10 photography prints from my long term award-winning body of work ‘Destination Europe’ – documenting the migration crisis in the Mediterranean sea (2015-16) – will become part of the permanent collection of International Centre of Photography Museum (ICP), New York City. 

‘The International Center of Photography (ICP) is the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture’

ICP Destination Europe by Jason Florio. Prints donated to the International Center for Photography NYC
Jason Florio – ‘Destination Europe’ – one of the top winners of the Magnum Photography Awards 2017

Cornell Capa founded ICP in 1974 to preserve the legacy of “concerned photography”—the creation of socially and politically minded images that have the potential to educate and change the world—and the center’s mission endures today, even as the photographic medium and image-making practices have evolved. Through its exhibitions, school, public programs, and community outreach, ICP offers an open forum for dialogue about the role that photographs, videos, and new media play in our society. To date, it has presented more than 700 exhibitions and offered thousands of classes at every level. 

ICP brings together photographers, artists, students, and scholars to create and interpret the realm of the image. Here, members of this unique community are encouraged to explore photography and visual culture as mediums of empowerment and as catalysts for wide-reaching social change’
