This project is an exercise for me to discover what truly catches my eye when I explore the city I call home.
That's why I deliberately left out the iconic Roman elements that would make the city immediately recognizable in my photos. I didn't want to add any unintended meanings to my images.
In simpler terms, I just wanted to do some candid street photography in Rome, without the Coliseum and other typical Roman landmarks getting in the way.
This is Garbatella, a peculiar neighborhood in central Rome, originally conceived for workers housing, in the '30s, Now it's a hidden treasure, where time seems to stand still.
I shot this one while visiting the Museum of Else and Elsewhere, in the suburbs of Rome. I didn't find anything that impressed me much in there. Until I saw this.
PS: the two guys are not part of the exhibition, and neither is the sofa.
I came across this urban Jesus. Don't know why he's carrying his umbrella on a blue sky day. Why is he clenching his fist? Or is he holding something?
A Black Comedy
The street artist represents the Ego. His shadow is the ES. The bystander's shadow is the Super-Ego. And the magic box is the artist's right brain creativity container.
