About Daily Bread

“Sex, food, nature, the city where I live, my son, relationships, friends, family, even fleeting
encounters, these moments enrich me as a human being. They are archetypal, belonging to a
common DNA, the essence of our very biology. They are at the root of my existence, hovering in
the pictures of my life.
Sometimes there is tranquility and safety. Other times there is flux and danger. Discovery can be
euphoric, but even when knowledge brings pain and discomfort I welcome my vulnerability as an
emotional lash to arouse the soul.” Jean-Marc Caimi

In ‘Daily Bread’ multi-award winning French-Italian documentary photographer Jean-Marc Caimi
turns the camera on his own life, sharing intimate moments in a visual diary that scratches at the
surface of reality to reveal hidden truths, sexual tensions and the unseen beauty found in
everyday moments. Choosing to shoot ‘Daily Bread’ in black and white Caimi returns to his roots,
to the reasons why he became a photographer, using shades of light to create allegorical
associations and compelling narratives.

Jean-Marc Caimi works as a freelancer for Redux Pictures and his reportage work has been
published in leading global publications and aired on news programs including Time, Newsweek,
The Sunday Times, Le Monde Diplomatique, CNN and Al Jazeera, amongst others. He has also
exhibited his personal work at various festivals including Delhi Photo Festival, Format Festival
(UK) and Entre Margens Festival and Encontros da Imagem Festivals in Portugal. He is the
recipient of numerous awards including the 2013 PAA Awards (Czech Republic), and the
Biennale di Videofotografia (Italy). In addition to his freelance and personal work, Caimi is the
director of a photography course dedicated to refugees and migrants living in Rome.

“Jean-Marc has closed the distance between the photographer as a recorder of the truth and the
subject, to create photographs that are intensely personal. Here the intimate relationship of both
parties – subject and photographer - engage and crystallize in the frame.”
Yumi Goto.
