Antoine Giacomoni is a French photographer. For the past 30 years he has taken photographs through a mirror. He calls his way "mirror sessions" like a musician: he started with rock stars. Nico was the first and then Antoine made the portraits of Lou Reed, John Lydon, Depeche Mode and many others. In that period he lived in London and Paris. Then he became blind, and came back to his home in Corsica. Now he can see again but his condition is very strange: he is a photographer but he's sensitive to the light! He always must dress in sunglasses and a cap with peak. He started again to photograph, but this time changing his subjects: the common people of the islands (Corsica, Sardinia, Siciliy). Now he takes a trip to find new people in the western Mediterranean Sea and he'll see the great poet Adonis, Henri Bresc, the sufi Ahmed El Keligh and others. "Fuori Rotta" is a visionary trip in which the dream state comes in a documentary for the first time. Salvo Cuccia's kind of vision totally funds Antoine and his trip with a continuous epiphany of peoples and places through the sea and the desert.
