Remaining Lights explores the relationship between memories and the practice of photography through a narrative composed by landscapes. The series considers the brain as a camera that fixes in memory sequences of lights, colours and shapes, now lost between the blurriness and clarity of past moments. Using the mental footprints left by specific times and locations, I tried to recreate through photographic images my original memories.
In order to achieve this, I followed a very particular procedure. I returned to the locations of my memories with a handmade pinhole camera, shooting on 5x4” colour film to finally hand print the photographs. Such process helped me to merge the phases from conceiving the photograph to the final work. In addition, the camera’s long exposures enabled me to capture the essence of those ‘mood-landscapes’, fixing onto paper the relation between the Memory and the Land.
