3 - The Soul Gear
Rome 2014 - 2016.
For three years I have taken the tram n.3 every day, photographing with an Iphone the human river that flowed on my skin, during my daily rides.
In a stream like that there is no definition or social categories. Everything slips away. Everything is forgotten and becomes rarefied enough to just leave the impression, the face, that takes care to show the essential. That's all we need to know.
People, such as water, may take the shape of the container. For this reason, sometimes in certain places their changes can not be controlled, nor documented. With my iphone I just wanted to close the gap between me and the others.
This work does not pretend to tell a story. It's only a trace of everyday life and the people, that we forget every day. A kind of personal diary that reminds me how many times I have been in the eye of another without realizing it.
The archive of this project currently contains around 6.000 portraits.
