Luca Manfredi: Pavee Kids Ireland - Ostinati prigionieri di sogni

Luca Manfredi: Pavee Kids Ireland - Ostinati prigionieri di sogni

Luca Manfredi has walked the land and has seeded a memory of it’s people with his vision of Irish Pavee kids. Precocious and mysterious lads, they draw upon their inner strength to find a place within themselves where removal from a place does not create sorrow, but freedom. At ten years old with their own horse they are like complete adults. They sway in the meadows with a cerulean aura on their skin and excitement on their faces as if they were continuously singing. They are young, around eight, but for some inexplicable reason they carry on as though they were grown men. They have many siblings among their own kind, were raised without formal schooling, and are children of extended ‘families’ where their own language of signs and gestures are recognized without judgement.

Samuele Bianchi, Simone Letari, Simona Lunatici: sedimento

Samuele Bianchi, Simone Letari, Simona Lunatici: sedimento

sedimento (sediment) originates from a larger project called Guardo divenire immagine, a two-year research carried out by three photographers: Samuele Bianchi, Simone Letari  and Simona Lunatici. In this book the authors explore places with no documentary intent. They observe them, cross them, live them with an unbiased look which is always ready to embrace what chooses to reveal itself. The word sediment indicates the solid material that settles at the bottom of a liquid following the application of a force.

Giuseppe Pagano: Giacometti

Giuseppe Pagano: Giacometti

Giuseppe Pagano’s journey in the world of Alberto Giacometti commences with the small stones placed on the sculptor’s grave, in Stampa, at the local cemetery surrounded by the high rock faces of Val Bregaglia. From that moment on, and on several occasions, he keeps returning to this valley in pursuit of the evidence of a suspended transition: “I could feel that that place was calling me” – he said – “everywhere I looked I could see unequivocal signs, as though his presence were blocked in that place”. It is only through death that man is, in some way, freed. Death makes life solemn and so, as Berger says, “the essence of Giacometti’s work is the awareness of death”.

Napoli mare

Napoli mare

If each narrative, as Algirdas J. Greimas states, has thresholds, then cities too have entrances, borders and contours. Naples has often been conquered from below, taking advantage of its ancient Greek aqueduct to enter the city; in fact Naples has an underground and conspicuous contour with no light, made of age-old, dark waters. For centuriesmits beauties have been approached by the sea, then inland journey being long and tiresome. And if the old heart of the city beats without the sun and sea, as in Caravaggio’s paintings and Anna Maria Ortese’s novels, its contours, even the most distant ones like those of the splendid Campi Flegrei, are rather flooded by light. \...\
Carlo Desideri has done a radiograph of its coasts and novelists, pursuing through his photographs those places which have been endlessly described by writers and voyagers.

Effetto nottetempo

Effetto nottetempo

Nocturnal places like suggestions which surface from the darkness of a virtual canvas. Unusual dwellings and spaces in which the lunar, artificial light seems to blend with the wind to create new forms and original visions,
in which the invisible becomes perceptible...
or perhaps these are simply moods, amplified by the dark.

Ferita Armena

Ferita Armena

Melancholy, rain, snow, windswept landscapes, run-down Soviet buildings, fighting dogs and many sad flowers scattered on the ground in front of the twelve basalt slabs of the Genocide Memorial on the hill of Tsitsernakaberd (“swallow’s fortress” in Armenian); but also raised fists, the symbol of the Armenians’ eternal struggle to ensure that the terrible 1915 events are not forgotten, and untamed faces with fiery eyes bearing the burden of an ancient sadness.
