SPIES, LIES AND SABOTEURS 2018-2020
Photographs that delve into the tension between reality and myth, and the fabricated and authentic, Formento & Formento allows for a spattering of ambiguity that has uncertain intention and unexpected consequences. An homage to the unsung heroines of WW2. These women were especially prevalent in the Special Operations Executive, a cobbled-together network of spies and amateurs that wrought havoc on German occupied Europe. Scores of female operatives trained to handle guns and explosives, memorize complex codes, organize munitions and supplies drops, endure harsh interrogation. They were military women, journalists, cooks, actresses and ordinary people caught up in extraordinary times. Their stories demonstrate that they were women of extraordinary courage and inventiveness who helped save the world.
