“Biblical images” is my second project’s name dedicated to a sacred/religious subject, after “Via Crucis” realised in 2017. My main interest in biblical texts lies in being a sort of human values’ encyclopaedia. I made every photograph using only objects: the intent was to depict the biblical storytelling’s simplicity and universality utilising elementary and fixed forms like letters of a visual alphabet, which create aesthetically essential and bare images. Therefore I felt the need to minimise space and time’s visual role in each photograph by adopting highly contrasted lighting and unidentifiable place. I also limited the colours’ use which only appears if linked to a specific meaning, and I opted for the figurative or abstract style mainly for suggestive aim. I chose these stories from the Old Testament following instinct, and we know that intuition never wrong.
