Not the presumption of imposing the vision of shots deemed perfect.
Not a series of aseptic and separate shots.
But perfectly thought out and well-taken photographs to tell visual paths: the eyes create the stage for so many adventurous processions that these black and white figures are able to convey.
In opposition to the pushed technology of the easy photographic “mobile phone” – where the algorithm invades the field of skills and violates the truth overflowing into dangerous alterations, up to augmented reality and therefore to lies – here we return (or stay) to the pleasure of the right sense (also aesthetic) and above all of narrative semantics.
In opposition ’till the point of reaching the courage to banish “color”, that excessively abused and spoiled color that does not always do justice to all images, because it might prefer some of them discarding others in the name of a ruthless chromatic eugenics.
So “black and white”, because it is more democratic and fair when it treats each shot in the same way, without automatically dignifying one among the others, and because for us the frame comes before everything else, and an architectural harmony emanates from the image: images of spaces that evoke life, the life of people who animate other spaces, architectures that speak of men, and men who speak of themselves and their worlds: worlds of houses, buildings, environments, roads, mountains, seas, nature, …
Against an easy aesthetic hedonism, built and rebuilt on the rubble of a more noble and healthy ancient aesthetic, we have tried to re-propose a nice story.
Beautiful stories, with good figures, because the pleasure is not only in the straight simple cold perfection, but in the emotion evoked by serious images which then, in their juxtaposition, cleared of selfish meanings and free from haughty lines, offer us much more and also the permission to transfer a story and its memory.
Voices of personalities and poets from everywhere in their native language.
And our voice, between the Italian and the English idiom.
