The location for the shoot is The Cultural Association Boes and Merdules in Ottana, Sardinia Italy. The group was established in 1973 with the intention of promoting carnival folk traditions. The ‘About us’ page image is all men, but let’s not jump to conclusions. For my own self-education this may be an important link in stories of human migration. On the rare chance that your interest is as keen as mine on this topic, I’m starting here: Genomic history of the Sardinian population. I love Vogue Portugal’s quiet but relentless focus on identity and the roots of our humanity.
