A Summer’s Tale is a simple, fragmented story: a light and distinct memory like some dreams are. Inspired by Eric Rohmer’s Tales of the Four Seasons, it persists the time of a caress. This is a dream with open eyes, full of escape and enthusiasm for a few long-desired moments of vacation. The frames are witnesses to my dreams and, once again, photography helped me understand that sometimes our expectations lead us to great heights, often unattainable, while dreams can be simple and achievable, as if there was no need to go too far to turn what is untouchable into something palpable.
