Movement of its inhabitants, citizens; buildings and environmentPaolo Emilio Cenciarelli
Seriously, Accattò…You know I am someone who has studied, you can trust me…
tell me your last wishes, what sort of funeral procession?
Friends follow the hearse, first one to weep buys the drinks!
What inscription on the tombstone?
“Try it and see!”
Pier Paolo Pasolini, Accattone
On entering the neighbourhood of Quarticciolo I experienced its centripetal force, due to its movement.
Movement of its inhabitants, citizens; buildings and environment.
Black and white brings an intimacy to narration as well as requiring, in the instant the photo is taken, a careful analysis of the forms.
The colours disappear, reappearing later, becoming brighter in the mind’s eye.
Every image of the Quarticciolo environment repainted itself while the photos themselves were being put in sequence. Almost without effort, together with the colours also the scents and warmth from the sun came back; these drew blinding shadows and left space for the sounds.
The counterforce was released, like a whirlwind, it captured the memories of those colours which now can be SEEN.
