Momentum

reportage

Momentum is my ideal photograph model: the shot wants to represent the connection between speed (movement and expression) and mass (intended as the subject with his Physicality being and place).

COMPLETED: 2008
CLASSIFICATION: Photography, Lanscape, Portrait


The latin meaning of “momentum” is not only moment but also movement, motion; In classical mechanics, momentum is the product of the mass and velocity of an object. My intention is not to represent the motion and speed as they are, but the extraordinary balance of “momentum” in the everyday life.
So a simple walk become a Magritte flavour composition, but everithing in the shot is untouched, everithing is “real life”. A jump on the beach or a jogging moment become something that reveal hidden parts of our IO (ego).
