“M.A.N.N.” is an acronym, as it is commonly called in Naples, the National Archaeological Museum, one of the most important museums in Europe dedicated to Archaeology.
I had long felt the need to artistically interpret the archaeology in this museum after my visit in spring 2017. Always very doubtful and sceptical, I wondered whether it was legitimate to present these works, experimenting with a free chromatic interpretation with the addition of a frame, which is an integral part of the photograph itself.
Whenever I deal with Photography, ‘the photographic thought’ of the great Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri is always present in my head, inviting us to ‘dare and be curious’.
I have a great defect in doing Photography, I cannot like and recognise myself in what I have photographed, if I do not interpret what my gaze has caught; I never feel it is mine, the need to interpret is absolute. I have always considered myself not a photographer but simply an interpreter of Photography.
These 12 photographs are part of a project consisting of 23 images with the same title.
