STORIES OF SEAWATER IMPRINTED ON THE HULL OF AN OLD BOAT

The pictures of this video are not paintings or digitally made compositions, but macro photos that I took for my project-research “Lacer/actions” around an old boat – and its hull – in Torre a Mare, beautiful seaside place in Apulia, Italy. It was winter. The shabby boat rested a few meters from the sea. It immediately attracted my eyes: the blue paint of the hull, after thousands of hours of navigation, was corroded and decomposed. It was as if the sea water, in its split, had imprinted all the possible stories and shapes of the water. By bringing my eyes and the camera closer, I could hear and feel them. Now I share them with you, through these images.

Frame from the video “The Shapes Of SeaWater” by Roberto Alborghetti

Era inverno. La malmessa imbarcazione riposava, sul molo di Torre a Mare (Bari),a pochi metri dal bagnasciuga. Attrasse subito i miei occhi: la vernice azzurra dello scafo, dopo migliaia di ore di navigazione, era corrosa e decomposta. Era come se l’acqua del mare, nel suo fendersi, avesse impresso tutte le possibili storie e forme dell’acqua. Avvicinando i miei occhi, e la fotocamera, ho potuto ascoltarle e percepirle. Ora le condivido con voi, attraverso queste immagini.

  1. Very nice and I like that you included a wider shot of the source boat at the end. There were a few different styles of transitions in the video and I enjoyed most the ones that receded away from me. The music added another layer of drama. The whole thing made me smile.
    Have a great week 🙂
