Coming to grips with a shattered reality, I tried to make an excursion into the uncertainties of urban life, playing with the echo of imaginary worlds, questioning my visions and my own identity.
I would love to continue this project, collecting more images in the attempt of showing the world in a way that recognizes the fragility of our constructions, that accepts, and perhaps welcomes, the discovery of a torn veneer. My subjects accept the failure of order; they sense their own inability to control the world and yet, they keep trying.
This work has been printed on packaging paper and self-published in 2010 in Rome. Now it is around.
