|FROM FORM TO SIGN (1979 2000)
To live, for me, means to let oneself incessantly be caught in a turmoil of dynamically related physical and intellectual experiences. Form, even when it is symbolic, leads me to the path of remembrance interfering with the perception of pure and irrational emotion. To dissolve form in a sign means to liberate the direct perception of emotion.
MY EYES FOR YOU (1999 2000)
This is a lyric of love dedicated to my beloved. The experience of loving is something that, though in incessant transformation and evolution, follows to some extent a cyclic quadripartite rhythm. For this reason I chose to use leaves as a symbolic element and, in photographing them, I have tried to recompose the various stages of this cycle: individuality, dialogue, falling in love, loving.
