Brancolina : ‘Urban Stories’ (Photography Book)

::

‘The city is a symbol, and there is symbolization of the city, but
it is in the image itself, apprehended through and by discourse,
that what the city represents for man is revealed and expressed.’

Raymond Ledrut (‘The Images of the City’)

“The urban environment is a genuine hub of activities and cultural expressions, ‘cityscapes’ conjure up multifarious visual associations, memories and experiences that together signal the distinctiveness of the city. For this series I photographed urban scenes with authentic details that triggered my thoughts and aesthetic feelings by geometric juxtaposition of urban elements and architectural semiotics.” [Ex-B]

Brancolina : Window Stories (photo book)

This book is a collection of visual stories written on windows. I was looking for interesting details, signs of human presence and reflections on window panes, those differences in repetition that add a touch of inconsistency to the strict order of a facade’s structural design and lend it a spatial dimension.

“Modern life is such that, confronted with the most mechanical, the most stereotypical repetitions, inside and outside ourselves, we endlessly extract from them little differences, variations and modifications. Conversely, secret, disguised and hidden repetitions, animated by the perpetual displacement of a difference, restore bare, mechanical and stereotypical repetitions, within and without us.” G.Deleuze
