Marks on Landscapes

Marks On Landscapes

One of my greatest photographic heroes is Mario Giacomelli, the wonderful Italian artist who allowed his understanding and love of poetry to direct his visual interpretation of the world around him and particularly around his home in Senegallia in the Marche region of Italy.

He said… “For me the photographic film is like a printing plate, a lithograph, where images and emotions become stratified.”[

I made these images to celebrate his great work and to pay attention to his lessons regarding the effect human intervention has on landscapes

Some of them were made near Senegallia.
