Most Were Silent, the long awaited book by the artist duo Vittorio Mortarotti & Anush Hamzehian, concludes a trilogy (“The First Day of Good Weather”, 2015 - “Eden”, 2016) in which the authors investigates the dynamics of memory and how History interferes with private fates. 

“In Most Were Silent, the synesthesia prysm, the sensory phenomenon that suggests a contamination of the senses is used to magnify the depth of perception and to demonstrate that History is a process of stratification and absorption that can be modified through individual and collective filters. However, no contamination is risk proof, especially when it comes to modifying the common memory. That is exactly the strength of this book, besides the disquieting beauty and poetry of the photos, it succeeds in creating a new perspective in the narrative and memory of past events, without losing the main purpose of each narrative, which is not to retain the truth but to maintain integrity intact. “ [from the text by Stefano Riba]
