Explore Anna Adamo’s fly-on-the-wall photographs from Gabber dance floors
Words by Anna Adamo
I started photographing gabbers a year and a half ago. I have always been intrigued by things that are ‘extreme’ or out of the ordinary - that is why I became fascinated with gabber, a subculture which is still vivid in Italy today.
I really enjoyed roaming around on the dance floor with my camera. It was such a great experience to feel invisible between the noise, the high volume, storms, colours and sweaty bodies. Here, in this chaotic world, I tried to steal the quiet and dreamy moments.
As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.
Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.
As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
