In the beginning it was like the big bang. Everything was blown up, as in a great explosion of light and matter. Yes, they call it primal chaos. These are the suggestions proposed by this macro photograph, which is part of a series relating to a large outdoor advertising billboard. The layers of paper, once removed from the surface, had left residues that revealed scenes of great chromatic impact. As if an invisible hand had enjoyed composing scenes that evoked the beginning (or birth) of the world.
So, welcome to the “projection game”! Since I started documenting, with the camera, the world of the decomposition of materials, people have always been spontaneously pushed to see, in my macro images, worlds and dimensions that I had never imagined. I think it is one of the most interesting aspects of my research project.
A LESSON BY LEONARDO DA VINCI
Since the beginning of humanity there have always been those who have tried to read the clouds, the sky, the stars of the night, the signs of the earth. In practice, what is part of one’s inner world has always been projected onto the outside, in search of security, explanations, reassurance.
I have always been fascinated by the behavior of Leonardo Da Vinci who advised his students to carefully observe the stains on the old and dirty walls, or to see and scrutinize the marbled stones, in order to see landscapes, battles, heads, figures, shapes.
In practice, the great Leonardo advised his students to take part in what today, in various fields of knowledge, is called a “projection”. Moreover, the human being needs to know himself and to develop his interiority through external stimuli (and the experience of the “test” as a psychodiagnostic tool will also arise from this).

In principio fu come il big bang. Tutto venne mandato all’aria, come in una grande esplosione di luce e di materia. Sì, lo chiamano il caos primordiale. Sono, queste, le suggestioni proposte da questa macro fotografia, che fa parte di una serie relativa ad un grande tabellone pubblicitario all’aperto. Gli strati di carta, una volta tolti dalla superficie, avevano lasciato residui che rivelavano scene di grande impatto cromatico. Come se una mano invisibile si fosse divertita a comporre scene da inizio mondo.
