Passo a due
Narration of vital cycles, discovering your self-image in the vastness of one another.
Love that inflames us, anguishes us and asks us to become hope.
So then you capture the fleeting things, transitional acts, emotions stolen from the oblivion of time; the seeming inconsistency of reality becomes narration that identifies with the desire of giving birth to a new world, in which hurts and anguishes are healed, in which beauty can finally triumph.
Photography can sometimes listen, can wait, as poetry does, before starting to tell.
As poetry, the photos by Luisa are leading us to a possibility, a truth we haven’t found yet, from the worlds of dream, to the dreams of the world.
Far away from the shaken and tumultuous dizziness of everyday life, in the silence, the photos of Luisa induce us to go through and participate to experience.
The experience becomes aesthetic and ethic as far as we develop it, we dedicate ourselves to it, we fight for its fullfillment.
Experience, as Dewey says, must be accomplished. The arrival, pivot point for Dewey is always the work of art.
Such is Luisa Briganti’s photography.
