“I went back to my garden.
I like to photograph it, I need it.
Something is changed,
A small movement, to the surface.
I haven’t moved too much after all.”
“Il Giardino” continues the journey that has started with “Radici”.
As in his previous chapter, the narrative is built by following the urgency of a “need to accumulate”: collecting images that surround and testify the author’s daily life.
If from one side the language remains faithful to the mechanics of Radici, on the other it introduces new themes. Themes that concern the landscape, the distance between the camera and the subject, and the horizons that derive from it. A new territory, not only intimate, but above all geographical.
Lastly: as for Radici, “Il Giardino” is a series that is born as self-analysis, as a moment for the Self, as a catharsis, and as for any other human analysis it is not a theorem and there are no solutions.
It’s just a story.
It’s just a story.
