APULIEN The Apulien project is a photographic book edited in Germany, born to clash and refresh the imaginary the Germans have about Southern Italy, and specifically the region of Puglia (Apu- lien). The project was born to clash and consolidate and freeze at the same time the imaginary, the landscapes, the human values of Puglia, a Region of Southern Italy of which much is said lately but very little is known. About UFO, about old and new cowboys, lovers, about the sea, the red soil, the snow, about poets and saints and about nylon figs. The project, that has become a book entitled Apulien, was published in Germany in 2012 and is now at its third edition. In 2012 it was awarded as Best Book and Country Pick at International Photography Awards.
