Franca Giovanrosa is a young photographer from Rome who opened her first solo exhibition in Milan: "CITTàLTRA". Her research starts from a very personal sight on the metropolis as a place of isolation. Perspective with a cut very tight, a sepia toning in antiqued iron frames, its cities become a symbol of modern society, in a deep internal crisis. The rust of the frame, and background color of the images, depict the acquiescence, that is, passive acceptance, inert, unmistakable symptom of a man alienated and locked in himself. The city, therefore, becomes the representation of citizen man, who, desolate, brings with it the decision to "non-being". So, decides to silence all its own initiatives sensitive, for fear of suffering. In these landscapes, the world of dreams is far away: its existence is veiled from rust. The formal discipline of the images reveals the obsession developed dall'acquiescente. Time slows down and everything returns quickly in order: the fear of doing, leads us to use the time for giving order the life. While the daily is stopped and replaced by an ethereal suspension of the soul in search of one's self, the clouds, on the horizon, simbolize what will could be, that's why it's scares. The air stops, you want to go beyond the limits, but for now you stop at the same point and the only vision that you can have is only partial, symbolized by the limit of the iron frame,that's so heavy just to underline the sense of barrier, cage within which it is allowed to watch and no later than, as watching life which goes ahead, at the window.Why look around, would mean to ask itself questions and make decisions, positions. Dealing with the other self. So instead, the city becomes "other" by itself suspended, floating in rarefied air.Cittàltra.
