Amman


Amman:

It’s an old cotton mill, a huge structure in the Northeast of Italy, active from the second half of ‘800, and since around 1980’s inactive and left abandoned.

The project presented is a slow reportage, the result of several months of exploration around its different areas  together with long exposures.

This work is influenced by the Japanese aesthetic concept of “Wabi-Sabi” applied to a typical Industrial Archaeology reality.

The landscape shown through these pictures (large and medium format with Mamiya and Linhof) from its original structures typical of early XX century industries, becomes a newly created post-industrial stage with its peculiar scenery.

A similar process of sedimentation that these walls and elements went through, has been applied to the images’ capture process, using closed diaphragms (/16 to /32) and long exposures time to transfer these layers to slide films.
