Notes for a Silent Man
“It’s a story of the gradual acceptance of another part of the self; it is about the new, in its manifold meanings.
The images were created on a journey that was undertaken to rediscover memories connected to the artist’s father. Through family photographs and his own dreamlike images, Camerini collects fragments that shape themselves into unknown archipelagos.
To speak to his father, Camerini uses his camera, and the pictures become a whole new language, an attempt at explanation. To fully understand, one has to challenge oneself, exposing something private to the public. This story is everyone’s story, because growing up is everybody’s experience.”
(Giulia Ticozzi, This is a voyage of initiation)
(Roma, IT, 1987)
