ME & MR. BRAINWASH

Mr. Brainwash in Paris, June 2006 72

The first time I’ve run into a Mr. Brainwash stencil I was in Paris with my wife. I was amused by the image of that man in a hat carrying a movie camera not far from a big size OBEY Angela Davis portrait. I took a couple of shots of Mr. Brainwash’s stencil. I like it. Two years later Mr. Brainwash would become a world famous street artist with his first personal exhibition in LA, Life Is Beautiful (2008). Almost thirteen years later, I have met by chance Mr. Brainwash in person, in front of Deodato Art Gallery, the  location he chose for his first Italian solo exhibition, Milan Is Beautiful. We said hello. We shook hands. And I told him about the discovery of the stencil in Paris in 2006. Very naturally Mr. Brainwash lent himself to an impromptu photo session in the street. Five shots – only one slightly blurred. Then each on his way…

THE MORANDI BRIDGE, GENOA

Ponte Morandi, December 20, 2018_00

Genoa, December 20, 2018: a whole day dedicated to a photo project. Subject: the collapsed Morandi Bridge. I was in town with a friend, creative designer Federico Ramponi. Guiding us via WhatsApp, the Genoese La7 journalist Paolo Colombo, who suggested most of the places we shot from.

With these 29 b&w shots, I want to play the sense of movement of pain and loss against the granitic immobility that dominates the ghost neighborhood’s streets and buildings under the bridge.

I tried to narrate the neighborhood with its bridge from different angles. The hills around the Polcevera stream have proved excellent observation points and allowed me to have a wider and more complete view of the disaster.

Once at home I realized that my shots possessed a sort of camouflage ability: while I was shooting, I continued unconsciously to see the bridge still intact in front of my camera. The horizon, the electric cables, the houses and the neighborhood with its silent architectural geometries have become substitutes for the missing section of the Morandi Bridge.
