MACRO PHOTOS OF A WASTE BASKET WITH CORROSIONS AND CRACKS

Video for Lacer/actions Project. The wear and tear of time causes corrosion and cracking. This is what happened to the waste baskets placed in the center of a surprising medieval village, Abbadia San Salvatore, on Mount Amiata, in the heart of Tuscany. The yellow paint, over the years, has peeled off and corroded, leaving room for imaginary arabesques that the eye of my camera caught at close range. Soundtrack: Consort for Brass, Kevin MacLeod (YouTube Audio Library).

THE FOUR SEASONS IN LACER/ACTIONS: WINTER #4

Each season has its colors. But what colors does winter have? Easy to answer, just look around … The torn advertising posters on billboards also have winter colors. So, through my macro photos  I tried to imagine a color palette … Yes, trails of snow and ice, in exclusive for my LaceR/Actions research, which is a multidisciplinary project about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. 

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing some of the 120.000 pics captured around the world. Remember, these are not paintings… They are macro photos of the real word around us. A videoclip will follow very soon.

Ogni stagione ha i suoi colori. Ma che colori ha l’inverno? Facile rispondere, basta del resto guardarsi attorno… Anche i manifesti strappati della pubblicità hanno colori invernali. Ho quindi provato ad immaginare una tavolozza di colori… Sì, scie di neve e di ghiaccio…

12 PICS (FOR 12 MONTHS) SELECTED FROM THE 12.000 MACRO PHOTOS TAKEN IN 2019

 

What better way to remember a year, 2019, with twelve images, one for each month? Here are twelve images for twelve months, selected from the approximately 12,000 that I captured in 2019. From January to December, traveling through colors and emotions,  through macro photographs that tell the reality that surrounds us … As is the purpose of my Lacer/actions research, which is a multidisciplinary project about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs. Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this gallery showing twelve of the 125.000 pics captured around the world. Remember, these are not paintings… They are macro photos of the real word around us.

Quale modo migliore di ricordare un anno, il 2019, con dodici immagini, una per ogni mese? Ecco dunque dodici immagini per dodici mesi, selezionate tra le circa 12.000 che ho catturato nel 2019. Da gennaio a dicembre, viaggiando tra colori ed emozioni attravero macro fotografie che raccontano la realtà che ci circonda… Come è nella finalità del mio progetto Lacer/azioni

THE CRACKS FILES / JUST A CORRODED SURFACE ON AN IRON STOOL

It was just a cracked surface of an iron stool. The green paint was corroded in several places. A close-up photographic shot gave the image a different meaning. Is it a jungle seen from above? A glimpse of forest? A trampled lawn? It is certainly an image of Cracks.

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project which investigates and explores the incredible dimension of the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings billboards. Since 2009 I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks (yes, cracks are maybe another metaphor of Life, as well as the waste-paper…). All the Cracks pics are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images. So, welcome to Cracks world, where matter is broken but not split…As you can see in this image.

Era soltanto una superficie screpolata di uno sgabello di ferro. La vernice verde era corrosa in più punti. Una ripresa fotografica a distanza ravvicinata ha dato all’immagine un significato diverso. E’ una giungla vista dall’alto? Uno scorcio di foresta? un prato calpestato? Di sicuro è una immagine di Cracks.

This image may look like a painting depicting a sky that has shattered under the blows of human stupidity …Or due to global warming. But more simply it is a macro picture of the cracks on a sign at the Monterotondo train station, Rome.

But they are cracks on a green waste container…
