A Simulacrum. The representation of a God, an image that does not correspond exactly to reality. Modern society, Baudrillard claims, has replaced reality and meaning with symbols and signs and has become so reliant on simulacra that it has lost contact with the real world on which the simulacra are based. These photographs are, to this respect, simulacra of simulacra. Small votive altars that populate Sicilian nights, often neglected, and to some extent, more and more anachronistic. Mysterious, dilapidated, illuminated or not, abandoned, overwhelmed by galloping globalization and by general indifference.
