“A Mezzogiorno is an Italian expression meaning both “at midday” and “in the South”.
This work is the result of my personal perspective towards my own origins, which I inevitably keep questioning every time I travel back to South of Italy.
Traveling there means entering a dimension in which time never seems to pass, in which life flows marked uniquely by customs and traditions. Life becoming still life. It is a familiar, reassuring, yet numbing state of mind that while living abroad I learnt to inextricably long for and reject. It is the indissoluble mixture of sacred and secular, tuff houses eroded by wind and sea salt, peeling lime wall, rust, sunburnt land.
