Francesco Romero's statement
The series F O G T O B E R was conceived as a study on absence of sound. In an era in which we’re surrounded by loads of unnecessary words, information and noises, silence seems to get way overlooked. In this specific context, fog is basically nature suggesting we all need a break from reality to get immersed in silence. An exploration of nature-generated emptiness aimed to highlight what really matters. There’s always something surfacing from a thick blanket of fog. Something that while speaking with a ghostly voice it’s still able to communicate more than a thousand yelled words.
Just like with music, it’s all about the silences, the pauses, the emptiness. There’s silence first, and then, music.
Some selected shots from the series FOGTOBER are available as limited edition fine-art prints via Open Doors Gallery.
