Synopsis

«On December 30th, 2019, from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, on the island of Ventotene I took pictures of a geological wall, thereby reading the history of the earth and the stratification of different eras, on this I glimpsed a shadow, a silhouette and I imagined seeing an ever-changing human profile, who is "questioning me". Highlighting the human shadow this became nature and it can't be otherwise: Man is Nature!» — Aniello Barone

«Today, photographing the earth, the stone, an outcrop of the Earth’s crust in the sunlight does not only mean observing fragments of a mysterious environment, one fatally modified by man, but it also means bringing into conflict — and therefore questioning — the irreconcilable differential between time of existence and that of the cosmos.» — Unmeasuring Time, Antonello Frongia
