This series of large-scale images finds its origins in the beginnings of photography, when Louis Daguerre’s «Boulevard du Temple» photograph from 1838, showed an apparently empty street where only a shoe-shine was visible. The exposure lenght 3-5 hours long allows only immobile elements to appear on the photograph. Human activity disappears. The images are then recomposed, reworked bringing together two technological periods of Photography’s History.
Our intention in this project was to merge what exists and what imagination projects on our world. An inner and silent representation of our world.
