We perceive the world as a sum of instants that, overlapping each other, merge to form feelings and memories, our very own reality.
I shot all around the environment that surrounds the subject, recreating that kind of perception, collecting pictures as fragments of time and space, suggesting a story, sometimes a memory of it.
Hanoi is the most recent work of a series centred on the cities, from Tokyo to Hong Kong, passing through Lisbon, Florence, Bangkok and NYC.
Over time I’ve become more and more passionate about big cities.
The hugeness and the mood, the vibration, the smell and the noise, all these things that metropolises have are captivating for me.
They give me that precious sense of estrangement that makes me feel ‘not at home’.
The Hanoi series talks about people, maybe more than the previous series I’ve made. All the images of the series are portraits of street’s people, surrounded by their environment.
I’ve found in Hanoi a very peculiar sense of intimacy. The proudness, the bond with the land, the strong relationship Vietnamese have with the matter, with the earth, with nature and the love for life permeates everything. You can feel it in everyday life gestures, even the simpler ones.
These were the things I’ve seen and I wanted to talk about, to tell in my works.
