I shoot photos because it's an easy way to turn upside down what I see. I have got a photo in my hand. I saw what is in it, in a day in my life that thing happened. Probably, in that moment, I felt something was burning. And everybody knows images can burn.
I took part to a summer camp in Berlin this year, I was selected for a short flm I made. The camp took place in a well organised outdoor sportpark called Mellowpark, but the aim of the camp was to build an utopian city on a swimming platform on the Spree river and show it to the German Government. I shot a reportage on this. I tried to catch the instants in which any enthusiasm died, and the almighty and funny aloofness of space arose.
What You see is a selection of photos, I titled it Under the Shadows of Things.
