BY LUDOVICO POGGIOLI
Ludovico Poggioli, was born 41 years ago in Umbria, where he still live and work. He choose analog photography because it leaves him free to forget why is he shooting a shoot, because in every roll developed he finds a shot that surprise him, because he says, printing your own photos in the darkroom is exciting and every print is unique.
Bellinverno project … Si, si d´inverno è meglio dopo è più facile dormire e andare oltre i pensieri con un libro di Lucrezio aperto tra le dita … Long coats and boots, roads shiny from the rain and wood fires, faces hidden under umbrellas, the horizon line blurred in the mist, the snow and its silence, the sleepy cities, the cold wind on my face, the caress of a cruel lover, a cigarette that shines at dusk, and the carpets of leaves, the liberated beaches, the awakenings under the bed-covers, solitude. In the north wind that pushes pedestrians towards their homes, in the lights of a still open café, I like to walk, breathe, look. In winter’s arms I feel at home, I'm stronger, there’s more space for the soul and thought, there I find suggestions and wonderful stories, encounters are more rare and valuable, and the lover’s embrace is warmth and comfort, then the fog envelops me, altering the aspect of places too well known and carrying me to where it is easier to be, away, unknown. Finally, after putting away my camera, I come back home, among my loves, happy. Welcome Bellinverno *Paolo Conte – La donna d’inverno.
The presented project was selected from a spontaneous submission made by Ludovico Poggioli. Our aim is to disseminate and bring to light telling work of emergent or young photographers.
