Capitolo 1 – Racconto d’Estate ( 2017 – ongoing )
Described as — a form of melancholy — in the Early Modern period, it became an important trope in Romanticism. Nostalgia is associated with a wistful yearning for the past, its personalities, and events, especially the “good old days” or a “warm childhood”.
I developed the narrative among the sea and the people, without rules or purpose, just with the desire to be free and elegant as well. Candid moments of a daily strolling, beach tales through bodies, details, skin, sun, sand and shapes. I tried to achieve the boundaries of the genres, walking on the edges: street-photography and fine-art, documentary and conceptual. Following these humans during this magic summer mood, I mixed the loneliness and light with a visual geometry, a dialogue between single images and fleshly diptychs, paradoxes and connections.
All these pictures were taken near San Benedetto del Tronto and Pescara. Mar Adriatico, Italy.
