Qui, Ora – Images of Reading by Gabriele Gelsi
Photography involves a choice. It is a reflection on a portion of reality. Whenever you look at a still image, the only certainty is that it reflects something which has taken place: that person, that object - or both- were there when someone took a picture of them it. I use the past tense because, as Barthes says in Camera Lucida, photography is "a figuration of the motionless and made-up face beneath which we see the dead."
Qui, ora ("here, now") is an attempt to capture life, and how its constant motion can be translated into still images.
