Paolo Rossetti on Ice Cellars:
Paolo Rossetti on Ice Cellars. It is almost ten years since I found myself photographing a flower for the first time with Francesco. On the one hand the two of us were there, with a camera in the middle, and on the other hand there was a lily. Out of all of us, the one that appeared the most serene and at ease was the lily. Francesco then continued to photograph flowers and they became one of his main research subjects. Together with landscapes and people. What unites them has to do with the spirit, that mystery that every shape whether small or immense contains, protecting its inner, magical substance. Francesco searches for this with an insatiable curiosity, a bit like a scientist or a miner, to transform it into emotion, joy for the eyes, food for the soul. A psychological garden. Look at the picture beside. Six coffee cups and six plates. Concentrate on each piece individually and try to transform what you see into a recognisable emotion, a sentiment that resounds within you: try to describe it. Now, you can combine a cup and a plate as you might compose your personalised garden, changing with your state of mind. You have 36 possibilities. Enjoy yourself with Ice Cellars.
