Mordor
Mordor
I am proud to announce my first limited edition print sale.

This photograph is called Mordor, because when I was there, with the clouds closing on this high altitude pasture in the Gran Paradiso National Park, I felt I had entered the evil-crippled land of Sauron. I tried to impress this feeling by converting the original color slide to black and white and emphasizing the dark tones.

There are two sizes available, A4 and A3+, each limited to 25 signed and numbered prints on HP Satin-Matte archival paper with pigment inks.

The prizes are 25 € and 45 € for A4 and A3+ respectively (excluding shipping costs).

To purchase one or more prints leave a comment to this post and I will contact you directly.


Availability:

  • A4——-23/25
  • A3+—–25/25

The whole Liguria was covered by a thick blanket of clouds. Climbing up the Ligurian Alps, towards Monesi di Triora, I finally emerged under blue sky, leaving the grey clouds below. I captured this scene upon come back, after a day snowshoeing to the summit of Monte Saccarello (m. 2200 circa), at the border between Italy and France. The sun already set, but the rising moon and the last light illuminating this wonderful scene.

Some winters ago I was exploring the High Valtellina and the valleys that lead into the secluded ski-resort of Livigno. It was 2003, down in Bormio there was a lot of ice but very little snow. To reach Livigno from Bormio you must cross the Passo del Foscagno, and finally up there, we found a lot of snow. Some kilometers away from the pass starts the Val di Vallaccia. The snow was almost untouched, powdery and perfect. We followed a large trail to this group of houses. Some ski tracks descended from the side slopes. Everything was white, pure, refreshing. I wish I had snowshoes to continue towards the end of the valley and be even more immersed in all this whiteness!

While the sun slowly emerged from a vast blanket of clouds, preparing for a glorious Alpine morning, ethereal limbs of vapour tried to climb the slopes of the Monviso, before being dissolved by the rising heat.

The long beach near Alghero, Sardinia, Italy. The summer at its best: strolling along the beach and taking a swim until the evening transforms into the night. Few scattered clouds diffracted the sun rays creating this amazing scene.

The Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso was the first national park established in Italy and protects a vast alpine area, across the regions of Piemonte and Valle d’Aosta. The photo was shoot in spring near the Rif. Vittorio Sella on the northern part of the park. High clouds were blown against the rocky peaks and assumed the characteristic smooth shapes.
