"Beste giada" is a 756cm long Leporello.
The work began as an exploration of a new city and its spaces, where I moved in during the pandemic.
Photography was a tool and a game to create contacts with an empty city where life was on a pause for everyone.
"Beste giada" is the diary of a journey and a quarantine, of visual and verbal notes, walking in the streets and then coming back to the closed environment of a house, fighting against boredom and solitude through photography.
I've been rediscovering the banality of everyday objects, by fitting them in different forms and with new names. A game through which photography became the bridge between my reality and those unkown spaces to be discovered at a distance, without touching.
In contrast with the solitude of the pandemic, the playfulness of the leporello with its drawings and notes has been a way to re-experience the semplicity of the photographic apparatus, its irony and innocence.
