When no sea is in sight, I can do with a lake. It reproduces similar feelings. With some evident differences, of course. A lake is limited, often you can see the coast in front of you, except the very huge ones. The sea is neverending. Even a little closed sea like the Mediterranean seems to be like that. A lake – with its well defined limits – is nearer to our human condition: it can be beautiful but you know it has to end.
Some stretches of road along our northern italian lakes,with mountains, villas, palm-trees and old villages are visually near to perfection.
“Road to Nowhere” is a free digital photobook with texts. All the chapters will be periodically published on this same blog.
