Alma Bibolotti



I am so attracted to the sea that it captures me completely. Maredentro means to me both ‘the sea inside’ and ‘inside the sea’. The visual and physical contact with the water, but also its musical dimension, nourishes in me a strong emotional relationship that allows a kind of epiphany: its flow and its rhythm lead me to a psychic reflection that I try to show in these photographs. In fact, I took these photos in the Ionian Sea of Salento: I was ‘in the sea’, in order to live a particular intimacy with this element. In this way, I experienced a kind of spiritual freedom, a suspension of space and time where photographing became a purely intuitive act. The surface of the sea, its ‘skin’ embraced my gaze so that I plunged into its visual complexity and its patterns of ripples and waves offered me a wide range of abstract scenes. In these ephemeral fragments of water and light, I sought new forms and colour combinations that sublimate the banal appearance of seascapes.

As if the Sea should part
And show a further Sea-
And that – a further – and the Three
But a presumption be –

Of Periods of Seas –
Unvisited of Shores –
Themselves the Verge of Seas to be –
Eternity – is Those –

Emily Dickinson
