Inspired by Edward Curtis as he immortalized Native Americans, Fab Rideti photographs the last representatives of our civilization, the "founders" of the 7th continent , before ecological consciousness makes these portraits no longer conceivable.

 

The series highlights consumerism and emptiness behind appearance .

 

Fab Rideti is touched by the ability of Man to persist in deadly mistakes. To get our full attention, she chose humor and tenderness over guilt.
