Lines, points, directions: the dancers of the wind are its guardians, when they close their eyes they listen….

Every Night and every Morn
Some to Misery are Born.
Every Morn and every Night
Some are Born to sweet delight.
Some are Born to sweet delight,
Some are Born to Endless Night.  

William Blake

L’autoritratto accetta una eteronomia per una intrinseca necessità.
het·er·on·o·mous \ˌhe-tə-ˈrä-nə-məs\.
Definition of HETERONOMOUS: subject to external controls and impositions.

The conference of the birds

“The conference of the birds” is:

Indeed, the power of flight.

Birds symbolize freedom, as in the expression “free as a bird.”
But it is also…air pollution and birds migration.
Thought pollution and mind migration.
The eyes of others might be our prisons;
their thoughts our cages….
It’s about cages and courage for freedom.

Would you want to protect the innocent in a comfortable, safe, warm, cosy life in a cage, or an uncertain life of freedom?

“She is like the wind, open and free. If I cage the wind, would it die?
-Then don’t cage it. Trust it to stay beside you.”


Eroded Roses

I’ve always loved sitting next to the fire with my grandpa, whatching old photo albums….

/Eroded roses/ is, for me, living photography:
it’s memories, smells, openings and closings, shinings, fadings, questions, phantoms, timeless creatures..
