Nothing is unimportant. There is no place without history, where you can just do what
you want. Every place speaks in a unique way. It needs to communicate a certain way
and to appeal to people. Architecture is an art of communication – not with words, but
with proportions and with an aura. Every building must tell a story. – Daniel Libeskind.

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]

If communicating means to put something in common, is it possible, today, at the height of

the era of communication, putting something in common? Or all we got are monologues?

About this issue………Seven years of a periodical and independent publication is perhaps both necessary and long enough a time to verify or put into practice a set of ideas, wishes and adventures.

YSE closes a cycle, but doesn’t close (neither literally nor metaforically). New situations, new circumstances and, most of all, new wishes and interests consume and demand the always limited well of time and energy. We have grown in this seven years without any kind of sponsoring, there was never a financial support or even modest underpinnings to give any logic of survival to the publication.

Everything has been done on breathhold, in a respiratory exercise, at times painful, even if oxygen (of course intangible) always managed to be there in the end. Nevertheless these are times of generalised asphyxia and sometimes – even though nostalgia or stubbornness exert their seduction- it is necessary to dry dock the boat, caulk and face different courses. We will go on…….but we will be other.

Concerned with being constantly updated, with obtaining the latest model of who knows what, with wearing the badge of the modern, informed, up-to-date consumer.

Undermined by ubiquitous messages that insist in reminding us that there’s always something better, that what we have is nor will never be enough, is bound to be old, of the last season or, which is the same but not, of centuries ago, which in consumption is equal to an era.

What if we decide not to be?

What if we decide not to run in pursuit of a future made into a gadget, a SUV or a trendy shirt?

It’s then that we realise we’re forced. That was seemed an option is nothing but a way to mask the fact that the objects themselves force us to discard them.

-They have a voice of their own and take command.

The operating system is no longer compatible with the software we need to install, the laptop does not have the required input for the new peripheral, the Ikea table didn’t resist the move, the soles of the shoes we bought last spring have come apart.

All of this thoroughly programmed to support a system that in turn supports us. To keep a job, to support the job of those who support ours, to not break a cycle of purchase-disposal-purchase beyond which we panic just to look.

And while we once again prepare to update, we fill up the trash bin with wasted resources. We dispose of the work of others: work designed to be thrown away. Objects with a programmed expiration date, which serve their only function without errors or delays: to make sure we remember to make our next purchase.

Is this the only way to keep the cycle?

How long will resources be able to support a race without (a) finishing line(s)?

Will we wait until then to imagine alternatives?

Brancolina : Abstracted Architecture

::

A selection of Brancolinas’ photos along with an interview is published in an article about abstract
architecture from nr.8 issue of the Ukraine’s ‘Photographer’ magazine (p. 44-45, 46-47 and 48-49).

1. How do you symbolize architecture according to your inner vision and your philosophy ?

Architecture is the art of creating a space that acts like a shelter for various human activities, if it’s designed perfectly it looks like an inhibited sculpture. I like to associate architecture with music: the architect “composes” with building materials the material space, while the composer “constructs” the audio space by using sound vibrations, they both use rhythm as the base for their creations. Pythagoras said: “There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.”

2. Why do you think people like these kind of geometric abstractions? Is it coming from men’s original subconscious images of achievable perfection ?

I suppose people like to create images with perfected geometric order because the man’s mind is always striving to organize naturally chaotic reality. However, this so called ‘perfection’ needs to be spiced up with a little bit of imperfection to look attractive.

3. An architect must be a very logical person, mathematically calculating each of his pencil strokes when making a draft, thinking about functionality, practicality and the rest of all those features which would tag a person with a materialist’s label. Here comes the photographer, a modern artist, mystic by his nature and starts “humanizing” that building. With this in mind can we name architectural photographers sort of our spiritual savors with narrow specialization? What do you think about this?

To fully understand and experience the building we must get in direct contact with it and feel it from various points of view, in the same way like somebody is viewing a sculpture. Architectural photographer is essentially expressing only his feelings about the building. His impression helps the viewer to get an idea about the structure, but it is not showing it in the same faithfull and accurate way as the plan. Photography portrays and communicates an atmospheric quality for the architecture. It promotes a feeling rather than the factual formal reality, it makes an artistic impression. The atmosphere or feel of a building is very much a sensory reality and it has a perception from the man’s perspective.
