    The series developed by Francesca La Franca interprets and expresses through the photographic medium the album "atmosfere" by the composer duo BORROMINI.

    Starting from the visions evoked by the sound, Francesca has recreated a complex system of symbolic moments that interact reciprocally and chorally in the pictorial construction of a multi-layered polyptych via multiple panels of chromatic variation, use of voluntary segmentations of the negatives, deconstruction of the body and abstraction of space.
    It is a sequence of XX color photographs shoot analogically both using medium and small format cameras.

    The project was pursued between Palermo and Berlin, where the writing of the album took place in 2017. It involved ten subjects and three different locations.

about

The release aims at evoking the feelings and atmospheres of a cold reverie. A deep insightful immersion that detaches oneself from the external, physical reality, enhancing an exploration towards consciousness in the moments that follow a traumatic state.

Side A (1 to 6): These fragments represent the different stages of progressive isolation and self destruction. Similarly to cases of Hikikomori or Blue Whale, here the individual is no longer able to distinguish between his inner awareness and the reality of the outside world, becoming a prisoner of himself.

Side B (residui) is a large mosaic made up of all the remaining particles of consciousness. The trauma of isolation and self destruction is gone and the individual tries to recreate his identity by putting together all the broken pieces of the conscious self and memories. The result of this reconstruction is a chaotic and neurotic internal landscape, entirely built on residues.
