What are the stories and the anecdotes that lie behind a photo?
A series of seminars in which the great protagonists of contemporary Italian photography reveal the work that lies behind a painstakingly composed photo or one captured in the blink of an eye.
In the second appointment we meet Silvia Camporesi, able to give new life with her shots of uninhabited places, in conversation with Marinella Paderni, editor of the book Atlas Italiae (2016, ed. Peliti Associati). In the exhibition a series of shots of an Italy that is evoked through the places of the collective memory of the country.
“This action, borrowed from the history of photography, has changed my relationship with places: it is no longer a quick photographic reproduction, but an appropriation of the ruins obtained thanks to the working time dedicated to each image”. Silvia Camporesi
The objective of her project is not that of a documentary, but is instead born out of a process of personalization and appropriation of the places visited: for this reason she uses a technique featuring black and white prints hand coloured using soft, easy to blend pastels.
