Bees World by Luca Mazzocchi
Ten illustrations showing moments in the wonderful life of bees. They have been designed above all for educational use and the texts, where present, are intended only as an aid to a more extensive study. The photographs have been chosen to catch the eye of both those who are approaching the world of bees for the first time and to give as much information as possible to the beekeeper or teacher.
In the spring of 2020, for many of us the world shrank to the space of a house or, for the lucky ones like me, a garden. Therefore, I started to photograph the bees that came to visit my garden. Then, I continued this project during the summer, while the world slowly resumed its space, to show how nature can be beautiful and varied.
I called this project “Le api nello spazio di un giardino” and finalised it in an exhibition displayed at the national fair “I giorni del miele” held in Lazise in October 2020.
