Stefano De Luigi’sPornoland Redux” is on view at the Photolux Festival 2022 in Lucca, Italy from May 21 to June 12, 2022

“Pornoland Redux” is the story of a land where pitched battles take place and epic exploits take place, a place that everyone talks about and that everyone would like to visit: Pornolandia.

Twenty years on from his first book, “Pornoland,” which investigated the pornographic film industry worldwide from 2000 to 2003, and was published by Thames and Hudson in the UK and the US, Stefano de Luigi has revisited his archive to produce Pornoland Redux. In a self-published edition with 350 copies, De Luigi has given the subject a more personal vision, with more than half of the photographs previously unpublished.
