Ombre rinate (Shadows reborn)

People and their shadows portrayed inside old sicilian buildings


I love visiting old abandoned buildings, especially those where it was a business activity or opened to the public such as hospitals, train station, etc.


During my last summer holidays in Sicily, after having visited many abandoned houses, I had the idea to bring my wife and my daughters inside few of them and take some photos.


It was sunset time and the light color and the shadows were really full of expression and interest.


So I took some photos of my wife and my daughter and of course of their shadows on the walls of these buildings.


Those shadows, those people just for few moments revived the old places...


One of the photos of this project was published in the english magazine "Professional Photographer" and rewarded as one of the year photos of the 2010 for the Portrait section and another one was being a Nominee at the 5th Annual Photography Masters Cup in Fine Art section.

Your body's warm

But you are not

You give a little

Not a lot


You coup your love

Until we kiss

You're all I want

But not like this

I'm watching you disappear

But you, you were never here


It's only your shadow

Never yourself

It's only your shadow

Nobody else

It's only your shadow
