In this beautiful book, Mazzoni takes us on a walk through the mundane. The mundane seems to be a popular place to go these days. Maybe traditional beauty has lost its appeal and it’s been replaced by imagery that is slightly more askew. Shooting the mundane can be tricky. It can end up being a mess of random nothingness. In this book, spontaneous scenes that, individually have little effect, have been sewn together to show direction.
In the adjoined text titled ‘Optical Soliloquy’, by Michel Poivert (Professor at L’Université de Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne and co-director of the Masters in History of Photography at L’École du Louvre, among other impressive accreditations). it straight away tells me that these images were a train of visual thought “spoken” aloud. Following this train of thought isn’t necessarily easy. Obstacles have been put in place to confuse and misguide the viewer. However, multiple conclusions can be reached by altering your mental point of departure. Imagery being far more subjective than spoken word allows the viewer to be left to go on their own individual journey.
'White Noise' can be deafening, it'll drive some people mad, but in the right frame of mind, can be just as soothing. Some times you just need to alter your perspective.
Really loved this book
If my flight goes down between here and London, I love you all. Xoxo hun
