“Demons from the Old Black, serpents and silence” comes from the necessity to combine images that don’t either tell a story nor analyse it but instead focus on a feeling and long to establish a connection with the observer.
The author, Luca Baioni, makes a deep reflection about life and death in an era where the use of images, both commercial or with documentary intent, is more than ever in an everlasting delivery loop of images reception.

Photographers, just like artists, need to unveil themselves first in order to expose the silence of the world. Those who just want to report things won’t move things. Only whose destroying them would obtain new shapes, new ideas and new inputs.
DFTOBSS, mainly wants to hypnotise the attention with the intent of raising doubts, not nourishing beliefs.
