A “work in progress” project.
A forest, a place where you can get lost and meet ambiguous figures sometimes with animal and sometimes monster features. A wounded nature in which it is difficult not to perceive, in its profound silence, its profound moods and reflect our own! If we are very careful and try to listen to it, nature speaks to us and communicates its pain which will be our death!
These photographs were taken in analogue with 8×10″ large format cameras using traditional film as a sensitive support. Almost all the photos are printed in contact between the film and the paper, with the ancient technique called “Salt paper”, the first printing technique since the birth of photography. I like to imagine the transmitted energy of the forest expanding beyond the image itself, in the signs left on the paper with the silver nitrate.
