The Aria Buia (Dark air) series began in 2015 with a project on the foibas of the area between Istria and Slovenia. The hallmark of these shots is the gathering of slivers of unique natural landscapes, strongly contextualized socially and historically through my attempts to play with lighting to evoke reminiscence of the experience.
Spectacular nature often holds tragic stories and, because of this, evokes the feeling of the sublime, due to the dual emotional and visual spectacularism of these places. The pieces can, however, coexist beyond their context and become “non-places” open to new interpretations. The peculiarity of the cotton paper renders the images almost pictorial and alive, as if they were real windows from which to look out, and even see and feel the air… of darkness.
