Lost Spring

Essay 10 • Apr 3rd 2014

The relentless passing of the seasons fascinates and affects me deeply.

When the harsh winter takes over, my soul feels lost. Only those little beautiful things, that stay in the corners and cracks, bring me hope of the recurring spring...

Even when your path is cold, desolate and hostile, this hope pulls you forward into the journey of life.



My collaborator, Nicola Ciscato, accompanies and supports me on all my shoots. I wanted to collaborate, giving him the details of small and beautiful things that winter gives us and which are unique, such as the frames of his films that I love so much.
