Waiting // Paolo Moretti
Paolo Moretti is a 29 year old photographer based in Monopoli, a coastal town in southern Italy.
His pictures are focused on quiet landscapes and decaying urban scenarios.
He uses photography to narrate his own struggle through the empty and gloomy places surrounding him.
Geometries and visual lines are used to add aesthetic value to the locations described.
This series is a personal vision of contemporary landscape, a real journey from sea to the empty holiday houses of Torre Canne (Br).
Faint colors paint an empty landscape, with no cars, no people, no voices, but full of melancholy and nostalgia, elements that carry a metaphysical say. Images stimulate not only the visual sense but also the emotive one. These places are ready to welcome summer and winter, happyness and melancholy, togetherness and solitude. The sound of undertow, the wind still warm after an intense summer and the atmospheres still lingering are not intended to be merely elements of a research on and about the territory, but a vision of what remains on the landscape after summer as well. Surreal scenarios skim in front of the eyes, metaphysical and desolate: it seems that these places only exist for tourists, leaving us all on a still carousel.
