Davide Mandolini


No Title

This series was taken in Sicily,
The subjects are love, freedom and sun.
I feel a sense of holiness when I shoot in that region of Italy, everything is so charged with
emotions and power.
Beautiful nature in contrast with a strong architecture, the incredible food and the big families
sharing their most precious moments.
I’m there observing, taking quick photographs to connect my self with that moment even more.
I’m here now and still I can remember that moments clearly in my mind.

Artist Statement

I’m fascinated by what for the most might be called “simple” or “basic” or event better by what
we are used to see in the everyday life.
Is there where I can see the reason why we live here and now.
I see the beauty through ephemeral moments.
To represent this feelings that I have I chose to shoot with a compact analogue camera loaded
with a black and white film.
I’m a huge fun of colors but sometimes they detached me to much from what I would like to
