Roberto De Mitri thank you very much, Mrs. Carmelita... :) ... non so se ci sia poesia, o quale sia la poetica di questa foto. io trovo essa molto inquietante. molto sfuggente... quasi minacciosa...

Anna Maria Colace Un solo pensiero ...se fosse stata la mia foto avrei tagliato le teste a questi tre soggetti perché mi piace tanto la parte bassa ;)

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri se avessi tagliato le teste sarei stato a rischio "scomunica"... :) ... che poi scomunicare me sarebbe stato un inutile e facile compito... :)
comunque ho un'altra foto, in effetti, con quattro belle teste mozzate e tuniche svolazzanti... ma l'effetto fa un po' sorridere... magari un giorno la metto... :D

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Mr. Aleksandar, thank you very much for the beautiful comment.

It is something quite fascinating. the change of perspective. the changing of our point of view, about something that we consider an element, or a place, or a situation that is part of our daily lives.

a scene of daily life, if you change your perspective, your point of view, it assumes a completely different appearance. a completely different meaning. and it transmits, it communicates a feeling, an impression completely different.

things change in meaning, depending on the changes of your point of view towards them. depending on your feeling or mood. and in this way, for example, a solemn and dignified event can be turned into something dark and disturbing.

this white light is not angelic and glorious.
but it is disturbing and distressing.

Roberto De Mitri Mr. Claude... :) ... thank you for the kind comment... too kind!
24 November 2015 at 12:32pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Sì, Carmelita. Quello che dici e che scrivi è tutto molto pacifico e condivisibile. Integro in alcuni punti il tuo pensiero. Normalmente, non sono proprio proprio un fanatico dell'idea “L'artista con questa opera intendeva esprimere o sottolineare”… Normalmente, il “sedicente” artista, cioè me medesimo, quando fa una foto non intende fare proprio nulla, se non la foto. Anzi, normalmente mi fumo una sigaretta. Per cui, consciamente, le mie intenzioni sono quelle di fumarmi una sigaretta. :)

Tornando seri. Se forse è vero che sono inconsciamente orientato alla ricerca della “foto triste”, consciamente è vero che mi muovo in quella direzione, per cui non posso nascondere quelle che sono le mie preferenze e tendenze.
Questa premessa sembra un po' inutile, ma serviva a introdurre questo discorso. Se è vero che quando faccio una foto non mi muovo quasi mai con l'esplicita intenzione di “far emergere” un qualcosa di specifico, è vero però che io la foto la osservo e, al pari di un normale osservatore esterno, anche a me piace esprimere quelle che sono le mie sensazioni e le mie considerazioni personali nei confronti della foto. Per cui è vero che la foto è sempre aperta al libero confronto e aperta alla libera interpretazione e, a maggior ragione, anche a me piace dire la mia.
Detto questo … diciamo che un po' il mio pensiero circa la foto l'ho espresso. Per me siamo molto distanti da qualunque concetto di spiritualità o misticismo. Anzi, questa luce bianca, così intensa e questi volti neri appartengono a una dimensione di incubo. Come una febbrile allucinazione. un qualcosa che sfugge al nostro controllo e alle nostre possibilità. ecco perché, secondo me, trasmette inquietudine...

Dana Winkelman avatar
Dana Winkelman Roberto. Sorry I am late to the party. The shot is literally bright but figuratively dark. At least for me. The POV gives a feeling of foreboding. Maybe it is my general reaction to things that have religious overtones. However, it is an extraordinary piece of work and I am really impressed. All the best. Dana...
25 November 2015 at 08:26pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri beh, Chiara... la tua è una lettura piuttosto materialistica e secolare dell'immagine. naturalmente va bene. quello che dovrebbe a mio avviso trasmettere questa foto è un senso di inquietudine. qualcosa che comunque sfugge alla nostra razionalità e al nostro controllo...
un regno, senza confini e senza istituzioni, che comunque ci comprende e ci condiziona quotidianamente...
25 November 2015 at 11:03pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri you arrived late to the party, Dana, but do not worry. we still have to open the bottle of champagne. :)
However, your reading of the photo is very similar to mine. The three people in the foreground transmit a sense of unease. as you say, as if they are the symbol of an omen. a foreboding. regardless of whether they are religious figures or not. this feeling is transmitted by the sharp contrast between their faces blacks. and clothes, white glowing and ethereal. This effect creates a feeling of restless dream. as something irrational.
thank you very much for your beautiful comment! :)

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri well... Oleg... The "kingdom" is a "place" that has no king and no people that support the command.
it is a "superstructure" that has no boundaries and does not have physical structures.
It is something that is beyond our control. It is like a huge Leviathan.
it regulates everything and everyone. but no one has full control of these rules... :)

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri è una immagine molto metaforica... rappresenta le forze oscure, ermetiche e segrete che regolano, regnando, la nostra vita...
qualcosa che è sopra di noi, una "infrastruttura" che influenza tutti quanti... :)

Roberto De Mitri ... non è una cosa che ha necessariamente a che fare con la religione, sebbene il contesto sia religioso... :) ... possono anche essere i mercati finanziari o le multinazionali come soggetti ed entità in grado di agire in modo autonomo...
