About the Book
Commonly called "Black Sun" the Solar Eclipse has for many cultures a profound esoteric sense. For the Celts for example was perceived as death on earth, in a dark and cold vise. It’s also the resurrection of the Sun which overcomes the darkness, bringing back light and heat on the planet, life. The good wins over evil.
During the last solar eclipse of March 2015 in street I felt cold, a fleeting feeling of helplessness.
From that moment I wanted to imagine, daydream, telling how would life that we all know in a permanent partial eclipse, sun and moon inexplicably locked in a status where the light gets murky with struggle on Earth.
Not completely dark, even too much light, a purgatory without exit, a sky without identity, where is forbidden to watch.
Than we could last? Just a bad dream.
Features & Details
Born and raised in Bologna in 1988, during his classical studies he developed an interest in everything related to the image, cinema and the great photographers of the last century and contemporaries. In 2014 with some young Italian authors he founded an artistic photographic collective called “Inquadra”, with which he collaborated for a few years before leaving and dedicating himself to personal projects. In 2015 he started working for the new Leica Camera Store in Bologna, and in a few years became Store manager. At the same time he develops artistic photographic projects collaborating with Andrea Celeste (life partner), with whom he has a daughter named Luce. In my photography, as in art in general, I am not looking for answers, but questions, because as the great David Lynch said: “why art should have meaning, when life does not have it.”
