HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED LOOKING OUT THERE IN VARIED DISPOSITION? THE DOOR THE MORE YOU OPEN WIDE, THE MOST YOU ARE GOING TO GET FROM ... IT SEEMS TO BE OFF-THE-WALL, BUT SOMETIMES BARRIERS ARE NEEDED, SORTS OF OBSTACLES, REAL OR IMAGED, TO BE ABLE TO LOOK OVER. WE ARE GIVEN "OUR BEEING WE"; ... TO CHOOSE OUR HORIZONS, FIELD OF VISION IT IS OUR JOB; IT'S UP TO US.
ometimes things seemingly without soul are lighten up by imagination. ... Field notes made of images; look like writings, thoughts in a notepads, preparatory studies: this is a sketchbook comprehensive series with a story behind it, somewhat illustrative of what made me addicted to photography. Literature, poetry, theatre, cinema, music, painting, sculpture, all sorts of arts, philosophy, architecture are talking about people, about living life. Looking at as per felt rather than seen, more emotional than on description; reading about, learning from: I’m there; it is simply great and in my opinion well suited to tell stories, to draw on a blank page, or design to build spaces in an empty space. Generally the ephemeral element is underrated issue; and this is anything but of less value if related to nowadays needed focused on changing and flexibility.
What I mean is architecture for example; and nowadays in some respects, photography can be creative and constructive more than architecture is. Well, that’s related to a matter of material; while on the other side is often misunderstood as per antonym of durable, not thinking contradictorily of its within eternal nature, something ageless. Stories carried forward by photography have not necessarily to be told or written too, as well as with pictures (and foremost not necessarily a photograph must tell a story in my opinion, at least not that only one by photographer). They are telling enough and widely meaning through purely aesthetic expressions. Everyone of us in front of pictures in any case receives impressions, whatever the author wants us to know about his shots. These impressions depend on photographer’s communication skills and spectators’ responsiveness; which in turn come from sensitivity, education or innate taste. I enjoy by catching pictures cause I find photography, gathering several arts, makes possible the expression in a unique simply direct powerful message that marks; a frame of mirrored lifetime that sometimes we are not given seeing. In photography ephemeral is truly longlasting, a contemporary alternative to trends of the moment. It’s like a “room”, game-room, a sort of extensive meditation corner full of trials and attempts, a sea for covering topics ranging from, ... trying to get and express a certain something that memory alone could not fix. It is topic for me and I’d like introduce you to. To change and change hurring up seems to be a must, the categorical imperative as of late, when it’s quite easy to come across "voyeurism" more often than vision. But time is our best and biggest wealth, resource in a lifetime even more problematic by events. Transformation, this is in the natural order of things in my opinion. It is a gradual and progressive change that within carries on the seed of previous steps. The key-point: the real tell is a matter of authenticity and not necessarily of success; this mostly metered on the
accounting parameter. They don't always go hand in hand. To change for a change with poor decisions could reveal a long-term regression in the state of affairs instead of progression. Then a forced change to move with the times in order to be by hook or by crook through and through up to date, generates in all likelihood lack of identity. That statement is to me an open mind set to preserve it so far. Life is complex, this makes the difference “exciting/boring”; cause we have to try to understand, to look for a vision. Bad would be if life was complicated rather than complex, there was nothing inside things or people, no ordering principle named in several names by cultures, to be searched for and investigated. Everytime I look at that I do like to consider myself as absolute beginners taking their steps: full of wonder, amazement, admiration; filled with a hint of embarrassment.
"... , Y has venido aquí para pedirme un barco, Sí, vine aquí para pedirte un barco, Y tú quién eres para que yo te lo dé, Y tú quién eres para no dármelo, Soy el rey de este reino y los barcos del reino me pertenecen todos, Más les pertenecerás tú a ellos que ellos a ti, Qué quieres decir, preguntó el rey inquieto, Que tú sin ellos nada eres, y que ellos, sin ti, pueden navegar siempre, ..."

s like as in front of the far horizon, given to your sight, you can only see what you are seeing. By standing in front of an imaginary hedge, a sort of obstacle that forces your imagination, you can also watch what you are looking at. Then, the hedge looks like cloud, the cloud displays a way to have wandering angles of seeing; a special sight that makes you able to let your senses acting as one and see, as reflected by a magic mirror, fascinating worlds to explore. A mere shadow unveils a shape let you see the inner structure of things; the architectures of words and pictures.
pent my work experience mainly as project coordinator both on assignment and as employee. Long used to switch on photography territories since the last-ditch effort of analog era, I don’t consider digital the end-all-be-all but a good place to start new explorations. Since the firm I was employee in went bankrupt, I engage in photography while Art and Image part-time teaching. Artistic is the mood; taking pictures: my job.
People’s daily lives unsteadiness requires in contrast working to do good deeds, that passes through beauty. But modern era undermined the classic binomial principle stating the good expresses the beauty. In current pattern of life, phylosophy it is no more foundation of civic awareness, whereas it should be master in criticism indeed. Paradoxically, the Age of Reason created as a result the fundamentals it was fighting against. So, what should have been free thought guarantee it became by far a vacancy for, due to lack of foundation. Reflecting on why, ask yourself the foundation of things: a direction to try doing better. That’s for arts and sciences, having a critical approach rather than rhetorical. And it is in depth, it is more about a dynamic than static methodology: it is ask yourself case-by-case which one of the approaches to try understanding. The most famous scientists without the greatest philosophers never would have existed, never the quantum physics. "Cogito ergo sum", I do good deeds then I’m good, I’m good then I’m with the good around me. Then, you can almost certainly say you are starting to be in the way of expressing. ... Just around the corner
A classmate of mine drew up on the paper a big tree, with a dense foliage and some red fruits in it. All around were amazed that the colored pencil, his fingers was holding to fill the foliage hatches with, was blue. I thought it was just great, with very expressive results. A children’s book telling about a girl was living in Solferino square at Turin and leaving for safari in Africa, wearing a camera around her neck. ... Flash-back from childhood, among the oldest images I remember. … The power of images to transfigure reality; and with those, our natural readiness to depict the world in a continous journey. That's with a special focus on that place that isn’t there, what is not only one thing one step at the time but fairly more things in only one at the same time. Lifetime is crowd in images, dreams are made of images; pleasant things or cruel they are.
