MICHELE SIBILONI: FUCK IT. Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 120 pp. with 62 ills. (52 col.). 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9783905929973 In English.
Publisher's description: Kabalangala, Kampala -- Uganda's most deliciously sleazy bar district, described by a Peace Corps volunteer as "Tijuana on acid" -- is rendered by Italian photojournalist Michele Sibiloni in an intense photo-book of full-bleed portraits of streetwalkers, good-time girls, vagabonds, pimps, drunken expats, drunken locals, drunken everybody, underpaid guards, overworked bouncers, all kinds of cops, NGO workers and back-alley exorcists. In 1986, the country emerged from 70 years of exploitative colonial rule, followed by a seven-year dictatorship and an eight-year civil war, to successfully present itself to the international community as a responsible, progressive site for aid and development. The rich, pungent variety of color images in this book will elicit a range of reactions: pity, disgust, uncertainty, titillation -- natural responses to such beautiful horrors. Sibiloni's work has been published in the New York Times, British Journal of Photography, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, M magazine, Wired UK, Al Jazeera and others.
