Interactions (2017)

“Interactions” is a declaration of love to the night-cloaked city, when each of its parts appears under a new (dark) light. Places shift and show the subtle equilibrium between the restful calm and the unsettling fear we feel in the dead of the night.
It is also a topographic research on city places that points at interactions of natural and artificial elements, the latter indicating a human presence sometimes fleeting, sometimes long-lasting. At night, the objects of urban routine mix with something unexpected, nature and man-made artifact become one in front of the camera.
It is the same act of shooting that gives relevance and dignity to something we see everyday, the ordinary but unexpected subject, so that every observer can acknowledge its uniqueness.
This sequence tries to show the city’s soul: shifting, unstable, maybe clearer in the dark. The places we usually inhabit have their own genius loci, sadly neglected in the usual hustle and noise that absorb all of our attention and interest. Objects and places are alive, and yet frozen by the flash in a single moment in which common things regain not just beauty, but something unreal, dreamlike.
A journey into the dream of an asleep city, for us to share.
