Neither Close, nor Far. Lugo
Né vicino né lontano. A Lugo

The project arises out of a residency curated by Luca Nostri on the invitation of the Commune di Lugo in January 2007. It is a body of work resulting from an intense twelve days photographing and wandering through this Italian landscape. It is a very silent work which incorporates the contemporary gesture of digital photography, which I have to some extent explored, with the ongoing work ‘In Search of the Sublime and Other Stories’ in which our protagonist, (our ‘hero’) the photographer, is seen bearing witness to essentially empty landscapes. In many ways this work is a form of requiem for what it is to be a photographer, but also, more particularly, for this moment within photography when we bid adieu to the ‘analogue time’.
