Editing my pictures of Pietro Porcinai’s gardens

November 23, 2011

The heritage group “Associazione Porcinai” asked me to do a small exhibition and talk about my photography of Porcinai’s gardens during their general assembly in December. I am very pleased as it will take place in the studio of Pietro Porcinai in Fiesole, near Florence, and the audience will be specialists of his work, his daughters, people who have worked with him, garden architects and historians… As the exhibition space is quite small, I will be able to show only 10 to 12 prints size 42X60cm (23X60″). Making a very tight editing is very difficult. I want to choose pictures I am pleased with as a photographer and which show Porcinai’s gardens special character and the subtle colors and lightness of trees and plants he was often using. Here are three images of a garden near lake Como that I put in my first selection. I might keep one or two at the end…
