In Bloom is a vibrant and joyful book that does not neglect any of the important issues underscored by Eleonora Calvelli’s photographs. In Bloom recounts the daily life of twelve families, and their efforts towards the recognition of their civil rights in Italy. The stories of these couples tell us about assisted fertilization techniques: artificial insemination, egg donation and surrogacy. But, above all, this book is about the way love has shaped their families.
With essays by Claudio Rossi Marcelli, Giovanna Calvenzi, Tommaso Giartosio and Giuseppina La Delfa.
