The scenario of the tragedy evoked by The Hope, the shipwreck of a fishing boat on the Lido Verde of Catania where six Egyptian children lost their lives, provides the second background to the Liu Bolin’s photographic art piece Memory Day. «Being immigrants lying on the sand - says Liu Bolin -, for someone they may seem dead; instead my intent is to describe their arrival and the start of their future». Compared to the most famous and longest-running series Hiding in the City, where Liu Bolin is the focus of the photographic subject, the evolution of his shots called Target series provides for the disappearance of more people in the context, in line with the content.
