By Francesco Merlini
Each image tells a story of darkness and light. Abyss and beauty exist so close to each other. Poetry in images that can tell us so much about life.
Francesco Merlini writes about his project FARANG: “In the time span of three years I’ve taken pictures in Italy, France, Turkey, Thailand, and Kosovo. I took pictures of unfamiliar places, pictures of strangers. The flash of the camera has consecrated my epiphanies, impressing the shroud that lies on the subjects whose truth I’ve discarded. These images are relics of the invisible. Every picture has an undeniable subject, no space left to distraction. Every picture becomes a tarot card, a singular representation of a collective perception.”
