(AGENPARL) – Rome, november 18th 2020 – The darkness’ deep was interrupted through a flash of bright colors, impetuous life’s chromes although on tiptoes.
Promise of a close heat in the frozen winter.
Ancient nuance cheers up with a new nourishment in the enveloping sunset’s shades.
The darkness gradually succumb, allowing that the obscurity gradually blanding in warm and encouraging/reassuring tones.
The wise light, lights up in a cheers to life.
In times of smartworking and lockdown (in soft version), staying at home does not necessarily have to be experienced as a constraint, a limitation to one’s freedom but to try to reinvent oneself, explore new jobs and work with imagination. Like children who are able to play and have fun with a clothespin (an archaic word in the era of dryers), you can escape with photography having few tools available. Few tools, a camera, an old lens that still does its job, seasonal fruit and a glass of liquid extracted from ancient recipes make you spend an afternoon amidst warm colors and courtly atmospheres. In silence and darkness, adding the beam of light from a torch, you travel on the wings of art, recreating digital images in a few minutes that in the past illustrious artists would have taken months to conceive and create and you find yourself thinking what Caravaggio would have been able to achieve. create in this century what wonderful digital canvases and what new visual languages he would have been able to conceive in our place with his light. Used to photographing in much more lively contexts where there is no time to prepare your photographic set, indeed it changes continuously from sky to sea to earth in the same day and where the eye must be able to capture the moment that will never repeat itself, this simple photography exercise was like going back to school and exploring old reminiscences that allow you to create images as warm, calm and serene as the moment of the shot. These moments are therapeutic, they remind you of the beauty of simple things, which you can experience even with less frills and look beyond. Try it
