Description

Exhibition of works by photographer Marco Sconocchia

The result of a six year residency in the UK, We Could Be Heroes is a study of the British working and underworking classes through the eye of Italian photographer Marco Sconocchia.

From the council houses and council estates – the symbol of the “killed socialist dream Utopia” to the life of crack users, to the atmosphere in the traditional, white working class pubs where Marco finds his heroes in the “drinkers, less well off, losers and idlers”, to the bareknuckle fights and the EDL, “the biggest and most violent right wing group in Britain”, to the antiheroes per antonomasia, the Irish Travellers, the white gypsies living all over Britain, the exhibition brings to life the world and underworld of modern Britain.
