The Footsteps of Silence: Photo Manipulations by Barbara Nati
Digital manipulations of London and Rome made to look like snow-covered mountain towns.
Rome and London are wrapped in delicate snowfalls that change their appearance, transposing them into tiny mountain towns. Nature subsumes the metropolis, silencing its noises and softening its pace, scaling life down to a more peaceful and contemplative dimension, at least on the surface. A sequence of subtle and poetic images is the result. Dreamlike postcards, laden with a powerful visual and psychological impact. Ordinary sights become allegorical, prompting the audience to look anew at reality, with more rigour and creativity.
