“I opened the book and my breath slowed. 2020 fell away. Francesca Todde has described in visual, visceral terms, a particular understanding of birds.“
Terri Weifenbach - Photo-Eye 2020 Favorite Photobooks

A Sensitive Education is a call to regain our sensitivity, to find our balance with nature, and to pay closer attention to the world around us. It is a thoughtful and beautifully produced book, that delivers a powerful acclamation of Plot’s vision. “
Olga Yatskevich - Collector Daily

A sensitive education is by no means a demonstration, but a strong poetic perception of the co-partnership of man and the animal kingdom.”
Fabien Ribery - L’intervalle

“In the time that subject and object of this narrative granted to each other lies the successful attempt to communicate through codes that have been lost in favor of a rationalizing evolution, but that the relationship between individuals — not necessarily of the same species — can still teach us to regain.”
Raffaele Vertaldi - Domus
