Michele Molinari
italian photographer
presents his project
"Pulmon de Aires"

"Hello everyone, saludos a todos, minaà kon'nichiwa, I'm Michele Molinari and I participate to the International Photo Project with the project Pulmon de Aires. The series of photographs presented is a selection of a much larger body, about 500 images, taken in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, with a digital camera mounted on a tripod kept in the same spot for 12 months. All the images reproduce the same subject: buildings in the courtyard, the pulmon, and the sky. What changes, with the flow of time and seasons, are the light and colors of the sky and the buildings, the weather, and the lives of the invisible inhabitants perceived through the lights in the windows, on or off, or the shutters, open or closed. The images were shot in RAW and the editing was limited to the essential. Colors have not been altered. Through constancy and repetition, the project Pulmon de Aires focuses on an ordinary subject until it turns the banality of everyday life into a complex and almost unexpected identity. These photographs are the memory that escapes us, when we look at the same subject on a regular basis over a long period of time, we are often unable to capture the change. "
