4/4 venice lagoon view seen by the lido on late spring 2007 (the prayer of the photograph)

i know that a picture is a picture

but i follow susan sontag that

said we take picture because are nostalgic

hence the collected pictures taken ten years ago

lost and found in my photographic archives

maybe in ten years ago i will be

nostalgic of the pictures taken today

but who will see them ?

sometime it a stop in memories

and memories become still

underground

amen

I had taken these photographs in February 2005. These are images of Venice in several place walking thru the ancient city. I am seeing like an observer from out world. Suddenly Venice becomes an “old” city but not “ancient” city. The stencil-graffito talks “wake up italy” or “wake up venice”. For me it is really a strange view to take pictures of this city.

unchanging time ?

(five picture shots of) venice taken by rinaldo rasa

suddenly sometime you recognize the fact that the same scene is representative of the new italians. sometime you see the statues of the musicians that are still there greetings to invisible emigrants at the pier. waving hands to departures from our ellis island then everything back in a mist
