When I saw you, you were not there (Quando ti vidi non c’eri) is a project that develops around the theme of the enjoyment of beauty marked by the disturbing interference of the thought of transience.

Often we unconsciously find ourselves hastily debasing allure by elaborating in advance and without any logic the idea of mourning.

Therefore we tend to attenuate the enjoyment of pleasure in order to avoid the pain that its loss will give us. In this way we spend our existence without realizing it. The thought of transience is perturbing.

These photos were taken in Rome and in Venice in 2009 in gallery spaces.
