Lucciole per lanterne (1992 - 2015)

Practical guide to appearances

The photographs open other imaginaries, suggest a surreality populated by beings and forms born from either the natural world and the human world, from blocks of sandstone, from machinery, from the interventions carried out on nature itself.

Open eyes, dreamlike, inspired by shapes, can thus see Zaffagnini's world populated by insects and plants where they had never been noticed, sprinklers that turn into snails, conveyor belts into religious mantises, stones in morays and toads etc.
