LANDSCAPES BEHIND

Landscapes, concealed behind other landscapes. Landscapes contained by a frame on the wall or by the sides of a piece of furniture. These landscapes, formed by time and decay, remain unseen until one day a house move, a death, a change in the unbroken routine of everyday life reveals them. Let us not forget that, as Roland Barthes pointed out, photography is closely related to death. Photography often deals with the past; photographs usually represent things that have already happened, people that have already lived and died, fields where battles have been fought in, homes that have been lived in, cities that have grown and cities that have shrunk to extinction. The "simple mystery of simultaneity", the coexistence of the past and the real (the present) in every photographic image is -according to Barthes- what nourishes our spirit.
