/01 The Lure of the Sea

Fabio Barile


“Among” is a documentation project about waterfront’s area subjected to a worrying amount of sea-erosion, concerning 1500 Km of italian coast.The alteration of both marine and river subtle balance, is moulding a new landscape made of streets stones, bridge’s skeleton, unauthorized houses debris and natural landscapes that the sea has transformed and encompassed.The project aim to evocate this transition with pictures shot during the blue hour or astronomical twilight. The long exposure allow the realization of timeless pictures.Day and night overlap themselves and the sea appearing like a gas makes his border with the land indistinct more than never, rapresenting the evolution of the mutation, main subject of the work.
