After years of portraits I feel a strong desire for solitude,
for spending entire days wandering in natural light, walking, observing and seeking visions.
I lighten my equipment – a backpack, a lightweight tripod and a few plates – and start to examine the land, details and little paths, all without a specific geography.
The rediscovery of nature puts me in harmony with the seasons.
In the countryside and in the city I always study the lengthening and shortening of the path of the sun from when it rises to when it sets, and for several years now I have started to observe with attention how the light reaches the ground in a different manner, “cutting” or completely illuminating it.
The “movement” of light is fundamental in the creation of a personal geography, as it delineates ever-changing landscapes and visions. I follow these changes and am aware of their uniqueness.
Everything is increasingly associated with a mental need and
a physical need to walk, frequently walking again in my places, but above all wandering without a destination, finding little personal landscapes in nothing, seeing and reconstructing them,
creating little personal visions, pieces of the world’s beauty.
