SPAZI VUOTI – SPAZI PIENI
(Empty Spaces – Full Spaces)
Series of diptychs made during the Aux Heures d’été Festival in Nantes (France), in the summer of 2012. I developed this photographic project starting from a specific intention of the Director of the Association Culturelle de l’été (organizer of the Festival, where I worked as a backstage photographer): using photography to visualize the impact of the public on the Nantese territory. This series focuses on the physicality of city space, where flows of people continually fill and empty urban spaces. This is a reflection on space as a vehicle for ideas, on the city-container of people gathered around the same intention (the festival). Empty cities are suddenly filled with bodies, ideas, voices, words. In a context where the change of a place is the product of exchanges between people, material and immaterial mix within a single container: the city, a coagulator of multiple passing solitudes, gathered around a sole purpose.
