"Fenster is a photographic project born in June of 2013. This work’s intent is to generate questions about the relationship between new and old photography in current times, when the web is the best-stocked gallery of photographic images. Spending time searching photos in old National Geographic magazines from the 1950s, I filled my folder with countless vintage images. I used to see a continuous mix between my portraits (approachable with a contemporary photographic aestethic) and these vintage photos on the screen. I thought that a coexistence between the two would be possible and fascinating. What would the photographs from the past say to our photographs of the present. The desire of exploring the world and life outside, against the physical predominance of the individuals who wish to be looked at. Reflecting about it, the new photography seems now locked up in the world of the web and of its windows (“Fenster”, in German). Technological, individualistic, self-centered and countless. Then I remebered a phrase by one of my favourite writers, Murakami: “With each passing moment I’m becoming part of the past”. And so I asked myself if the only common point between these two realities was the fact that, sooner or later, we would both become past. Not only that, but the purpose to keep this project going was to see the birth of many other questions on time." ( on YET magazine ) Read Less
