On the block
Since 5 months I have been working to create a photographic portrait of the block where I live, taking pictures in the interior of my neighbors’ houses and shops. To create this project I had the chance to meet very interesting people, some of them became little by little good friends and I have been active in the network of this neighborhood. There are still some neighbors that I didn’t meet and some that didn’t like the idea of having a stranger coming from Italy entering in their homes. Some are still thinking about my proposition and I hope to have the chance to photographs more houses before my departure next April.
On Wednesday February 13, 8.00–11.00 pm we are having a reception party at HSF to welcome the two artists just arrived. I am showing some of the photographs I made on this block so far and a presentation of the project.
Here you have the last “letter to the neighbors” I wrote and distributed around the block, a text explaining my feelings about this work and a small selection of images.
