This body of work is the first in the serie I call "Flickering East".
This serie is aimed to show the rising greatness and vastness of the main far eastern cities.
The idea for this project came to my mind in 2001 when I visited Tokyo for the first time.
Walking through the city a constant thought was bouncing in my head: "look what man is capable of..."
I was fascinated by the majestic architecture.
These pictures are willingly done by night to exalt the greatness of the architectural landscape
lit by artificial light and at the same time the very long exposures enabled to completely remove
the man from the pictures.
During the day I also shot the people living the city to analyze how people are deeply influenced
by the same cities and environment they built, creating a sort of circle.
This project has been shown at the "Museo di Roma in Trastevere"
for the International Photography Festival in Rome in 2004 and at the Napapijri shop/gallery in Milan.
