INABSENTIA

2014


I consider photography as a medium able to speak for itself, without the support of texts or other explanation devices. My ongoing research on the idea of ambiguity pushed me to search a narrative form that is at the same time able to reveal and to hide.

I understand this series of pictures as an attempt to create a narration trough the gathering of different single impressions, which apparently have no connections between them.

Even though the human figure is addressed, it is never showed: it is present in absentia.

Its direct view would be to too explicit, instead I portrayed the violences of the traces men have left in the landscape by being absent.
