“I’ve started by photographing my garden.
I was searching for something close to me.
Today I’m still taking pictures of my vegetable garden,
I can’t help it.
I was photographing Radici, only Radici.
I’ve driven my car up to the Cannobina Valley, the valley where my grandparents have lived, where my mother
grew up, where I’ve spent my childhood. I’ve done this also because, I have there a very beautiful garden.
It was a stream of consciousness lasted for a couple of years. from 2015 to 2017. I’ve started by taking pictures in my vegetable garden and the plants in my home garden. I was looking for something close to me and I found it by telling about that present. Is an autobiographical, plastic and free story. Is an instinctive and unconscious work but, not for that, less logical and coherent. Is revealing.
Radici is a project that is born as a self-analysis and, like for any selfanalysis, it is not a theorem and there is no solutions. It’s just a story.”Project presented in Giovane Fotografia Italiana #07 | Ropes/Corde
