I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
“Indago” is a work which comes from contemplating the natural environment and its different guises. In these photographs the author rediscovers forms and endows them with new meanings reflecting states of mind as well as inner feelings. These images in black and white conjure the night, and speak to the viewer of man and nature, of life and death, or about object’s concrete appearance. Ultimately, the images are open to interpretation, waiting to be transformed, to evoke different shades of experience in others.
The work’s starting point is the story of a man who lives away from the world in the middle of the forest; who shapes and sometimes destroys his environment, yet who also blends into and ultimately forms a part of it.
