My new series, “Raindrop Blues”, is now under your eyes. I hope you can find it interesting. Here a little selection with the first images that I’ve realized. A lot of people asked me if I use a wet glass of if I shoot behind a window. In the next weeks I’ll explain you better my way to realize this series. I’m waiting for the rain in order to take some new pictures, in the meanwhile, after the description, the first 12 images… Enjoy the gallery and open your umbrella.
“The rain washes memories off the sidewalk of life”, Woody Allen said in a old movie.
Raindrops, like in a blues song, fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm, awakening, as they were called in XVII century, the “blue demons”: a suffused sensation of melancholia.
Raindrop Blues Project tries to dip the viewer in a sort of oneiric reality, where the rain seems to fall on everyone, creating evocative images where every element – the street, the sky, the characters, the viewer – is involved in a romantic and, in the same time, melancholic feeling. As Bob Marley said, when it rains some “feel” the rain, others just get wet.
