Shortlist, Curriculum Vitae by Sabina Candusso
"Eurostat estimates that 15.583 million men and women in the European Union were unemployed in October 2019. Among the member states, the highest unemployment figures were observed in Italy, Greece and Spain. In Italy more than half a million people over the age of 50 are unemployed - my father among them. News channels report the statistics, but few explore the impact that joblessness has on individuals. Common problems include depression, anxiety, irritability, loneliness, apathy and a sense of abandonment. Curriculum Vitae is an intimate body of work, featuring my father who lost his job four years ago, but it also explores wider issues."
