TITLE: "When Love Outsmarts Time"
This is a series of shots over the Theme of Time.
1: Time In The Mirror - The photo was taken at my niece's house, in the front yard. The two subjects in the picture are my mother her other son's daughter. I decided to look at time as for what I've seen around me, the way it changed people and things in my life. My mother and her son's daughter are maybe the most meaningful representation of the way time passes by and changes everything forever.
2: Love Outsmarting Time: The two subjects are my parents. I had them sit on two rails, so as to help convey the picture's metaphor: two different life paths, one love, all held by the hand of Time, an hourglass representing the end-point where it all finds a meaning. Love outsmarting Time, Union outliving Decline.
3: Lady Time: The railway, the level passage is a place where we usually don't stop, stand or sit. The girl represents those who seek deeper and stop where others don't, wait while others rush, search for things when and where others won't. She holds an hourglass, symbol of the passing of time. The message is: if you stop, you can hold time, maybe just for a while. The armchair helps giving a sense of antiqueness, as if this moment had no time, as if it lasted forever.
4: Lady Time pt. II: This is what I may call a second chapter of a previous shot called Lady Time. That clock is the same I used in another shot (Time In The Mirror), and was my grandad's gift, before he passed on.
AUTHOR: Fabio Sozza (Italy)
I've been in love with photography since a kid. Today, what I enjoy making most often is imagery that can be categorised as street photography. However, I also like to experiment with more surreal, dreamy, conceptual and abstract works. I get inspiration from my surroundings and travels. I'm in love with the natural world. In fact, Nature inspires most of my work. I also get inspiration from dreams and daydreams. I am fascinated by the concept of Time, together with how our idea of it affects our perception, our experience of life and existence in this world. The sense of the Unknown also fascinates me. The Unknown, empty spaces, dark settings lead the viewer to greater personal interpretation, subjective completion of the scene, re-forged through the unique individuality of the viewer's eyes and mind.
