City Landscapes

City Landscapes is an ongoing project, situated between social documentary photography and street photography. The pictures were taken from 90’ of the past century till today in different cities in Europe – Rome, Paris, Cracow, Bruxelles, Antwerp, Palermo, Vienna, Padova, etc. My idea is to build a imaginary picture of a modern city – not a specific one – but, using a title of a famous book written by Italo Calvino – an “Invisible City”: “Kublai Khan had noticed that Marco Polo’s cities resembled one another, as if the passage from one to another involved not a journey but a change of elements. Now, from each city Marco described to him, the Great Khan’s mind set out on its own, and after dismantling the city piece by piece, he reconstructed it in other ways, substituting components, shifting them, inverting them.” This idea – of one imaginary place – kind of a puzzle build with various photographs is what I’m particularly interested in and I’m trying to realize this concept in the “City Landscapes”.
