These photographs describe an idyllic journey: the struggle of a man reaching towards a goal so distant and confused. The journey can be considered in an abstract way and applicable in many everyday contexts. It’s a tale where metaphors and connections to specific meanings are left to the reader.
The photographic language used to describe this trip is based on the fact that memories and dreams are rather hazy. I adopted a technique that would reveal only particular information while leaving the edges and washed out colors mixed, similar to pastel shades.
The pictures are drawn by light and inspired by the ‘sublime’ painting techniques, like sublime is the goal of the dreamer. Regarding the technical aspect, to realise this kind of images one maintains a long exposure time and varies the planes of focus, combining in some cases a controlled movement of the camera.
It’s important for me to emphasize that none of these images has been treated with artificial effects editing. Digital photos in Raw format were corrected only in the main features of the image (exposure, white balance, contrast, etc.). 20 photographs – book format 20x20cm – handcrafted Bodonian binding
