In this project I wished to deal with the theme Vanitas, a theme full as any of symbols and allegorical references. The theme captured me with its charm suggesting a meditation on the effect that time does on “ natural things ”, their fragility, changing, the decrease of the material, a decrease which maintains its own deep beauty. Life is transformation. I wished clearly to highlight the repeating of the clue left by the time, that’s changed according to the touched fruit or flower. The split of pomegranate, with its seeds nearly laid bare by lightning stroke, purple wound, strawberries in their highest flush and freshness opposing their wilting, a fig in its metamorphosis, the withered calla, these are aspects I like to capture. Time is stopped and offered to the attention. The arising emotional tension is what I’m looking for. I won’t to capture a superficial vision but to go other the photo action to another perspective, beyond the external form. The translation of the word to image has an immediate effect, simultaneous. It is therefore another time, the Kairos, the Carpe Diem.
