Tuscan Evening

 

The public spaces in a Tuscan town – piazzas, footpaths, church steps – are where the residents mingle and socialise at the end of a warm day.  After the heat passes, these previously empty places suddenly fill with people and come alive.  An hour or so later and they’re quiet again as people return home or move to restaurants and bars.  This work explores the similarities and differences in the way that people of different ages perform this daily ritual.

This image was exhibited in the PhotoAccess members’ exhibition Common Ground, for which the remit was: “Creatively document and interpret public space through photography. The physical and social dynamics of public space play a central role in the formation of community and culture.”

Prayer

Evangelical Pentecost Rally in front of l'Église du Dôme --- 7th Arrondissement, Paris, France

Some forms of activism are public and readily seen and heard. Prayer, on the other hand, is often a private way of seeking change. This gentleman, seen praying in an open-air mass in Place Vauban, Paris 7ème, bridges the gap and brings the private into a public space.

This image is my contribution to a group exhibition PhotoACTIVISM at PhotoAccess, 24 Sep – 18 Oct 2015.  The print in the exhibition is a Piezography Special Edition pigment print on Canson Rag Photographique paper, in a numbered open edition. And here is the image hanging on the wall in PhotoAccess:
