Growth Singles: Il Ciolo

This image is part of an ongoing series called Scenario. Inspired by illustrated postcards from the 50s and 60s, the series aim to capture the same blissful atmosphere through light and colour, whilst simultaneously diverting the viewer’s attention to the mundane and frivolous. Treating mostly anonymous characters and objects as bi-dimensional theatrical set elements, the images portray every tourist and none of them, questioning the authenticity of the experiences framed and highlighting the stereotypes to which these scenes often conform, while capturing clashes and interactions with locals. In this picture, a view from il Ciolo bridge, Salento, Puglia.
