MORTO IN ITALIA
DIE FARBEN DER SEELE

Sepulcral photographs from Italian graveyards

The process of re-photographing those photographs that can be found on Italian graveyards is evoking sensations of memory and loss, intensified through the signs of disparition and decay inscribed in the images by the passage of time that could be read as a purely nostalgic journey through Italian cemeteries.
With the focus on the scratched surfaces, it is about the thin membrane that separates us from the other side that one almost means to touch. While it is just the body's empty shell that has been left behind (Palermo), the portraits seem to belong to spirits that have decided to move on.

MORTO IN ITALIA was realized in four stages in 2006/2007.
