Luigi Tazzari’s Mare d'Inverno series is part of a well-established artistic research on the Romagna Coast. This series, however, leads us to a different scenery than the chaotic and crowded one typical of the summer time. In fact, the subjects of this series have been the author’s focus in many other occasions, but they are here captured in a completely new fashion. As said by Tanzari himself: “we are used to observe this coast through different lenses, and now I am interested in exploring the contrast between snow and sky, the bewildered effect of the first photographs, which slowly allow to disclose the place where we are”. And so, shot after shot, in quick succession we see not rowdy fragments of seaside life, but rather silent winter meditations, which explore in a new light those places that have already been object of observation. There is no trace of the heat, the sound, the confusion; but only a great sense of metaphysics and imperturbable stillness. The atmosphere in these photographs is rarefied, suspended, and contributes to shape poetic and evocative images, with the obvious power of bewildering the observer. The beaches covered by thick snowflakes, much like an Arctic desert, become a surreal scenario, all rediscovered in this new, lonely and wintery fashion.
