One, No One and One Hundred Thousand
© Marco Ristuccia
A research on the essence of life which is inspired by the organism ‘Tree’, observed both as a single and as a representative of an entire species. The visual fusion of individuals, through superimposition, reinforces the universal and fades out the particular, leading us to a higher level of thought. The eternal value of mortal life lies in repetition of individual’s uniqueness, which let alone would have no hope. We are all “one, no one and one hundred thousand”.
The project was realized along the Po river valley, in northern Italy. Each final print is composed by tens of single shots. I have deliberately chosen the soft light and pastel colors, typical of those places in cloudy days, to give a rather misty and graphical aesthetic to the final work. Finally, the canvas print contributes in underlining the texture and the atmosphere of the image.
