And They Laughed At Me is the winning project of the first edition of the Deloitte Photo Grant , the new international photography competition promoted by Deloitte Italia with the patronage of the Deloitte Foundation and in collaboration with 24 ORE Cultura , the artistic direction of Denis Curti and the team by BlackCamera .


Newsha Tavakolian's works arrive in Verona with a renewed installation and a selection designed specifically for the Eataly Art House public, following a first presentation at Mudec Photo (13 December 2023 – 28 January 2024) and the artist's participation in the Mantua Biennial of Female Photography (8 March – 14 April 2024). The And They Laughed At Me project collects over 40 archive photographs, unpublished shots and stills. The exhibition presents a selection of some images that present shooting or printing errors : these are negatives that the artist recovered in his studio while retracing the first years of his activity, discarded because they were imperfect. The artist says «I collected these unwanted, imperfect, fragmented images, because they too are part of history and narratives, they cannot be erased.


They show the raw and unrefined reality, which we cannot escape. The changes that we cannot deny and the inexorability of time that passes". Images full of humanity, marked by the accidental nature of everyday life, in which typical elements of reportage and conceptual compositions alternate , where multiple visions are combined and the photographs are manipulated with formal interventions or incursions. Newsha Tavakolian started taking photos at a very young age, around the age of 16 she was already collaborating with the Iranian press, subsequently establishing herself as a photojournalist for international newspapers such as The Times, The New York Time or Le Figaro, and carrying out reportages in different areas of the world. Her signature is particularly known for the great attention it has dedicated over time to the story of the condition of women and for having founded the female photography collective Rawija in 2011.
