this green facade was planned by gosplan architects. i went there with veronica rusca, one of the associates; the weather was awful. we have been lucky indeed.

this is a portrait of my mother i took a couple of years ago with my 5x4" view camera in natural light. i'm quite sure she will complain because i haven't photoshopped her wrinkles. she's a beautiful woman indeed.

progetto QD offers a view of ordinary italian landscapes and people. posted on progetto QD, this is a self-portrait i took 30 minutes after an invasive (and successful) dental treatment. half of my face was paralyzed by anaesthetics...

|this is me, offering portraits for free. pic by matteo casari|
this is a series of animated GIFs, starting from portraits i took in quartiere della maddalena, in genova, during a site specific performance. this place best represents the multicultural prerogative of this town: it is a crowded crossroads in which people of different ages, professions, ethnicities and statuses converge. there i offered portraits for free, during a week day afternoon waiting for people to ask for a portrait. in return i would have sent the portrait as a gift. the action triggered a relational situation not only between the artist and the portrayed, but also among the bystanders, who called other people and invited them to strike a pose. the spirit of this place – a melting pot – is reproduced in the form of the GIF file, as it is the simplest, minimal way to juxtapose two different characters in a dialectical way.
