TRACCE DI UN GIARDINO

“Un curioso particolare quello che nota Giulia Bernini, la quale sfrutta come allusione di una parte per far intuire la presenza di un tutto che si deve così ricostruire nell’immaginazione dell’osservatore.
Diventa così sorprendente come una porzione di parete o di pilastro si trasformi in una superficie quasi magica dove sembrano apparire, tra le ombre dei rami, scene di un gioco riflesso, sognato, forse avvenuto, o tuttora in corso, lì poco lontano.”

(Laura Marcolini, Il Fotografo)

Laura Plantation is a restored historic Louisiana Creole plantation on the west bank of the Mississippi River near Vacherie, Louisiana, (U.S.). Formerly known as Duparc Plantation, it is significant for its early 19th-century Créole-style raised big house and several surviving outbuildings, including six slave cabins. It is one of only 15 plantation complexes in Louisiana with this many complete structures. Because of its historical importance, the plantation is on the National Register of Historic Places. The site, in St. James Parish, Louisiana, is also included on the Louisiana African American Heritage Trail. (source: Wikipedia)

“People are getting insane, they even take pictures at wine bottles now…”

…said a woman stepping in front of my camera, shaking her head, while I was fascinated by the reflection.
Years are passing by, still, I keep noticing we do not ALL see the same thing when we look at something.

Sometimes sitting on the floor inside a church, it’s the only thing you need to do to ‘see the light’.
You just need to “Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see“.

A little Talent

Two years ago, November 2011, the project Leica Talent saw the light. I don’t even know how I got to know about it and if it was something global or if we had it just in Italy. They set up a contest, called 24×36, where 24 was for the 24 winners of the third selection (but not the last one) and 36 was for the film format. The 24 winners were given a Leica and asked to start a photographic project with it. Among those, a jury picked 12 lucky talented ones who began a cooperation with Leica.
Everyone was allowed to participate and everyone had hers/his pictures published on Leica website, as long as one was living in Italy and above 18. No required theme for the photos, you just had to send the three pictures more representative of you.
Just imagine what happened. It ended up with 42.567 participants. Countless debates. The first selection, made by the Leica team, cut them down to 2400. Again, I’m not a professional, I’ve not much experience and I knew I was not going to win. Just compete’s sake. I was happy enough to have passed the first selection and to be one of those 2400.

These are the three photos I sent (and yes, back then I didn’t even know you are not supposed to mix black&white and colour photos).
