Since 2016 I've had the chance to visit and live in impressive cities. I tried to portrait them in an attempt of transcending the single moment, the unique point of view. As an ongoing research on ways of visual representation to memory and to the state of presence, I explored the additive multiple exposures technique produced in-camera. Long exposures with the aid of an ND filter were also occasionally applied, especially in Amsterdam, influenced by Van Gogh’s strokes.
I tried to capture moments that extend to more than a singular view in a restricted space and time. As a meditation process while walking for a few minutes on the city streets or by surrounding a subject from different angles, I maintain the mind attentive to the present moment. From the first to the last exposure I frame three to five underexposed images to produce a final properly exposed composition. As siblings one to the other, the accumulation of these different moments compose a testimony of a condensed perception of time and space.
