Photographing means to me detecting, becoming aware.
Essentially everything consists in the choice of what i decide to include and exclude, and in the interpretation not as much of the subjects but rather of their differences and affinities. The fleeting and completely personal truths that i identify in this way are close to an allegorical dimension through which i tend to express those contradictions that end to get to me closer to reality and reveal it to me, in part. Letting do to play with my own sensibility is that momentary impulse that's at the beginning of each expression. Photography is a language which, althought made of light, inhabits my senses more than just my eyes.
Black and white
In the dark room,
Under a pale light,
A secret time originates.
From the water that the image evokes,
The scent emerges,
The wind passes ,
Like the voice you hear
On the background of a distant memory.
Poem by Y. Eguchi dedicated to Niccolai's work
