Roberto De Mitri grazie Claudio... :) ... soprattutto per il viraggio carbonella... :) ... ti dirò, mi sono regalato un computer nuovo e con un monitor eccellente. il problema è che per adesso sto letteralmente impazzendo sui livelli di contrasto e luminosità perché sono abituato al monitor vecchio e non so ancora se e quando raggiungo il livello di contrasto desiderato. ma soprattutto cosa vedono gli altri. immagino, da quanto ho capito, che tutte le prossime foto saranno meno contrastate perché, evidentemente, le precedenti, fatte con il vecchio computer, lo erano troppo se le guardo con il monitor nuovo. per cui... dimmi tu che vedi! :)

Jos Letschert Beautiful central perspective Roberto. The stairs and the black lines above tear us to that vanishing point at the end. Maybe your black angel came to late and has to wait here in the corridor of a church or a monastery for a second change. Maybe it is not bad at all, heaven is not that what it used to be.
Your black angel could also be a kind of saint, sculptured by a medieval or early renaissance sculptor, ment to be an embellishment for the naked wall. After all those years she could have taken the decision to leave her frame, still hesitating what to decide next. We don't know, we are just observers of a moment in time, left with the beautiful print of an interior and a person we don't know.

M W Fine motive was used here and the title to it :) Well, sometimes certain moments in life may appear when we have no enough strength to live further. We lose either everything what was precious in our life (and I don't mean here material things of course) or we just lose the whole stength and become more and more resigned, apathetic. Some people escape in such moments into the religion that keeps their minds alive and not crazy, the ones who believe, mainly. For others, the heaven is just a symbol they can relate to in their despair. Even the heavens door were closed in front of them, the last and final rescue where they could find a peace and a shelter. And when all is taken away and no doors of escape or shelter are open, then they become nothing. Yes, with no face.

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Jos... :) ... a work with concentric frames that literally captures us and draws us to a single possible direction. like an obsession. a corridor without a church and perhaps without any useful function. perhaps more like a metaphysical labyrinth, suspended in a dimension, an eternal limbo between damnation and salvation. with no apparent way out. or maybe even better, an initiatory path. the way opens when you have stopped looking for it. or the way opens when the spirit is ready to raise its will.
those whom we meet within this limbo are only the reflection of the souls perennially lost in it. their research is not over yet.
still many questions... :)

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Maria... :) ... in my opinion, the choice to leave often the woman (however the character) without face, is not a "depersonalizing" choice. indeed perhaps, in this case, this choice helps us to identify ourselves with this condition. that seems a condition of despair and reassignment within a limbo with no escape route in which we apparently seem to be prisoners.

but I do not say that this is a picture that speaks of despair and resignation. I only say that, in fact, there may exist some moments of our life in which we feel ourselves confined within an inexorable destiny. we feel our life as a prisoner inside a labyrinth (or a pre-established path) that does not show us the way out.
So here we do not have a limbo in which it is not possible to go out. it is not an eternal purgatory. it's like a rite of passage. we are motivated to look for not the way out of this place. but the way out of our condition of impotence and lack of perspective and will.

any kind of ephemeral escape is just a deception that keeps us more and more prisoners in our apathy...

and thank you very much for the beautiful comment... :)

Dana Winkelman Roberto. It reminds me of a dream that I have had off and on for my whole life. It is hard to describe but every task in the dream seems insurmountable... impossible... infinite... So I can't even take the first step and begin to disappear. It used to terrify me but now I think I am resigned to it. This photograph is personal for me, like you were reaching into my thoughts. All the best. Dana...

Roberto De Mitri Jørgen ... :) ... I think this faceless woman is lost within this path that shows no apparent way out. she got lost in her initiatic journey and, although she does not seem hostile, however, she can not help us find the right path that allows us to exit. we are condemned to find by ourselves the path that will lead us out this limbo... at least, I imagine so... :)

Roberto De Mitri Dana... :) ... your story reminds me of a recurring nightmare I often did when I was a child. in front of me there was a pile of white flour as tall as me. and I had to transport this pile of flour to a second place, but carrying only a single grain of flour every single time. the task was hallucinating and the feeling was claustrophobic...
in this photo the obsessive theme of the arches appears. an obsessive repeating theme. it is not something that extends to infinity only in front of us. but it's all around us...
like a mental labyrinth. maybe it's time to consult a psychologist! :) ... at least, I speak for me! :)

Marco Pastori avatar
Marco Pastori Questa sarebbe un'ottima foto anche solo dal punto di vista architettonico. Una struttura resa ottimamente, con impeccabili linee cadenti e geometria, e poi il susseguirsi delle strutture conferisce buona tridimensionalità e profondità. Ma vi è in piu' un elemento umano. Il volto indecifrabile e...quasi non si capisce dove e cosa guardi. Io pero' ho l'impressione che guardi al di fuori del fotogramma, verso lo spettatore. Cosa strana, perché lo spettatore è portato a guardare verso il fondo della struttura ed il suo susseguirsi. Strana. O meglio spiazzante e quasi motivo di una certa inquietudine e di punti interrogativi. Una contrapposizione di quanto è e quanto uno si aspetterebbe che fosse naturale. Perché io guardo verso il fondo e lui no? Che guarda? M? Cosa cela? Come al solito domande senza risposte. Interrogativi che emergono ma non si svelano.

Roberto De Mitri Marco... :) ... uno dei posti esteticamente (e architettonicamente) più "invitanti" e suggestivi per fare foto in Bologna. luogo che, paradossalmente non avevo mai visto durante i lunghi anni in cui ho vissuto in quella città. e ho voluto fare "ammenda" nei giorni scorsi, visitandolo per la prima volta... :)

detto questo, l'elemento architettonico può essere bastante, ma qui non è sufficiente. abbiamo un elemento umano. elemento umano "estraniante" ... che serve a conferire un tono surreale e metafisico alla già pur metafisica composizione... questa lunga via di colonne che funge da percorso iniziatico, da tunnel, da labirinto, da dimensione sospesa fra reale e irreale.
lei forse guarda verso lo spettatore. è anche la mia impressione. ma non sono sicuro di quanto l'osservatore guardi verso il fondo della struttura, cercando di individuarne la fine. perché la sua attenzione inevitabilmente finisce per convergere su di lei. che è elemento estraniante sì... ma anche di "disturbo", di rottura all'interno della foto. questo magari crea un senso di inquietudine e di mistero. Noi vorremmo guardare verso il fondo, lei guarda noi, noi non possiamo non ignorare lei. questo gioco di sguardi cela incogniti riferimenti. o forse impliciti? lei è persa all'interno di un inesorabile destino e sembra non essere in grado di trovare la via d'uscita. forse noi siamo condannati al suo stesso fato? come al solito... l'oracolo non fornisce risposte. solo domande aperte. a noi spetta il compito di interpretare le sue mute parole... :)
22 December 2017 at 11:17pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Marco... :) ... in fondo, ancora, forse, c'attende un cammino infinito... e la risposta forse, la probabile via d'uscita, si nasconde dentro di noi. per cui, cosa serve chiedersi cosa pensa la figura senza volto? magari lei non ha le risposte che noi cerchiamo? :)
