This is the shot of the Ex Pontile Sir: a 640 m jetty, built in 1971 to serve the large SIR chemical plant in Calabria. It had to allow ships to dock for loading and unloading the materials necessary for the operation of the industrial area. In 2012 it collapses, without ever having been used.
ECOMOSTRO is an Italian word that defines all those buildings that do not integrate with the surrounding environment
ECOMOSTRO TOUR is a photographic journey from Milan to Palermo, 2400 km to travel around Italy in 10 stops and 7 days. Each stop corresponds to one of the main “Ecomostro” that deface our landscape.
The structures are not photographed directly, but reflected in a 1x1m mirror. Installed between the building and the landscape, the mirror allows me to look in front and behind me at the same time, creating a visual bridge and a relationship between the two elements. The result is a series of photographic images that offer a symbolic mapping of kind of architecture and summarize the Nature-Building contrast.
