NUOVA ITALIA

We have seen lots of conceptual photography in uniform series, of course. But despite this I couldn't resist making NUOVA ITALIA on a photo trip through Northern Italy in spring 2015. Maybe because the result doesn't look as uniformed as expected.

All the pretty mediterranean beach sections near Livorno have been given special names, displayed in big (capital) letters at the top of the entrances. But what looks so dolled up during the busy summer and vacation times doesn't have quite as much sex appeal in the winter. It reminds of a clown, exhausted from the show, still partly made-up, sitting in the garderobe and knowing it's end of the work day.
