Inner Landscape


Recently I was asked by Elisabetta Portoghese, director of Castelnuovo Fotografia Festival, to give a definition of Inner Landscape. After thinking about for a while I ended up with these words:

If a landscape picture is a group of elements that can be captured, but not immortalized (because it is something that is constantly changing), the Inner Landscape is a set of feelings determining a temporary state of mind.
This photo represents my Inner Landscape, at the moment: the desert is an extremely difficult place to live, and even if it could look nice in its graphic simplicity and in its brilliant colors, the truth is that it has a meaning of loneliness and loss.
