"'The Flying Carpet' is a collection of images taken by Cesare Fabbri in and around Emilia-Romagna and Sardegna, Italy, between 2005–15.
The photographs affirm the simple magic of photography – as if it’s thorough the image itself that we might discover something for the first time, something right before our eyes.
"The camera," wrote Luigi Ghirri in the 1970s, "is a magical toy capable of bringing together the great and the small, illusion and reality, time and space."

And indeed, in these photographs, we encounter a world of things re-animated as images, a silent world roused from its slumber – huts with painted questioning eyes, an inquisitive mailbox peering over a fence, or an embroidered carpet lifting off in the breeze." (publisher's note)
