Between 2011 and 2017 I spent some time with a crew of young skateboarders from the suburbs of Catania, my hometown in Sicily, Italy. Throughout summer they used to hang out at the Testa ro Liuni (Head of the Lion) a lava rock cliff from where they would jump off to show that they were no longer kids.

The project was selected by British Journal of Photography for 2018 Ones to Watch Talent Issue and was published in November 2018 by Cesura Publish.

Here a picture of my editing room while I was working on an old dummy of Head of the Lion. Bottom right corner, Zira. The cat I received from Samuel and Shanti, two kids from the project.
