BOATS WITH NO SEA

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

Boats can remain in the harbor without sailors. Boats can be abandoned at the mercy of marine currents. But a sea-less boat must make people think. A ship with no sea attracts attention and suggests questions about its dry fate. Why does it lie there on dry land after a lifetime in the water? Who was its captain? Who were its sailors? And its passengers? The camera lens records the fate of these boats with no sea and tries to give them back a poetic fate. The camera lens imagines new ports and new sea routes for them. How many lives could these ships with no sea save?

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.
