This work is a part of a long time project started in the 2015. Photographs are related to the deep and unique relationship between Man and Place in a parallel and antithetical dimension to the fragmented reality that he lives on a daily basis. In this peculiar dimension, a very personal and subjective representation of reality, it’s possible to grasp the traces (grooves) – which change form and light in an unique connection with Place – mixing with the concept of existence/presence-death/absence.
The title of the work 1765 is based on a poem of Emily Dickinson that inspired me to look inside the dimension I talk about:
That Love is all there is,
Is all we know of Love;
It is enough, the freight should be
Proportioned to the groove.
I think that the grooves which Dickinson speaks about corresponds to the marks of a natural and interconnetted dimension of the world. In this non-fragmentary process with no apparent beginning and end, the marks – traces – set up an understanding and narrative map of the development process of human nature in relation to the context/world that becomes subject.
