Americana Breakfast table set - reflexion 23
New York represents the world, all of it, and also, but not only, America. A city that grants all, and it is for this reason that in fifteen years (from 1990 till now) I realized to have searched for its vital points through captured images, which have become the structural point of this project. Each time feeling the necessity to photograph the same things, the same places, as if in front of me there was something I had not yet seen. The blinding, frantic life of a metropolis goes on 24 hours a day with its neighborhoods, born of a well-rooted immigrant population, its skyscrapers that reflect, distort, exhibit and transform the city itself. The Twin Towers and Ground Zero, the starting point, and at the same time, final destination. In other words, to recover the memory of that which is apparently invisible, retracing ones steps, and immigration towards our inner selves, which leads us to a reflection, that exposes every possible point of view, and, for a while, transforms our life, that eases the pain and leads us to a new awareness.
