book is the first one in the newborn series “iMaxi-Fotodiari
Verdi” (Big Green Photo Diaries) by Pubblinova
Edizioni Negri, a series which aims to house, to say it with
the publisher's words, "photographic diaries from travels,
a photo period, individual nature events, or diaries from a
whole existence spent in touch with nature".
The book is
splitted in 16 Stories, each composed by an introductory
text and a variable amount of images, for a total of 216 pages
and 182 photographs, mostly in large size; through them I try to
tell by images some stories from my Swedish experience, to
witness suggestions of a place or a special moment, to recall
encounters with wildlife and everything that makes
"diary." Each Story is separated from the next by a Fragment,
a double page dedicated to a single indipendent picture which
witnesses of a spot, a creature or a feeling that do not find
place in any of the Stories.
from The Chronicles
of Särna have obviously their place in the book, and
finally the right viewing size in a suitable setting;
nevertheless the last two years of my life as a Swedish adoptive
are just a part of the publication contents. I traveled for ten
years, before, in this wonderful country, collecting material
and emotions, and those experiences that fascinated me enough to
make me finally decide to move.
The book cross
therefore a dozen years of "my Sweden".
