GHOSTS OF SUMMERS PAST

Many years ago, as a teenager I used to go on holiday with my family to beautiful Riomaggiore, the first village of the Cinque Terre, on Italy's west coast. During the day, I spent my time on the rocky seaside, jumping in and out of the sea, or go to see friends in Manarola, the next village; after dinner, we'd enjoy the cool evenings walking around the village, eating ice cream, talking with friends. I haven't been to the Cinque Terre since, missing for more than two decades, until this winter I decided to go back to revisit the places where I used to spend my summer days and see what they'd look like both through the looking glass of time and through the lens of my camera.

SOME NEW WORK!

While working on a new gallery & show (more on that later!) I found the time to post a couple of new images on VIERI BOTTAZZINI FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY for you to enjoy. The first is from a place that means a lot to me, Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre; I spent there a few summers in my youth, and came back last month after about a quarter of a century. No matter the years, I can easily say that each stone still has a memory attached to it:

INTERVIEW WITH PAOLO SOLERI, AN UTOPIAN AND A VISIONARY

In July 2010, during a trip in the South-West U.S.A. working on images for my VIERI BOTTAZZINI FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY business (see THE S.W. U.S.A., TEMPLE TO THE EARTH, THE GRAND CANYON and ANTELOPE'S SPIRITS), I set some time aside to visit Arcosanti & Cosanti and interview the late Paolo Soleri (21 June 1919 – 9 April 2013). Architect, visionary, philosopher, utopian, humanist, Soleri was ahead of his time when he started designing his utopian cities, worrying both about mankind's impact on the planet in terms of the wasting of resources and, in social terms, about the alienation that the traditional urban model was creating.
