12.00 PM a promenade along The Leas
[Starting from the Memorial Arch] Folkestone.
'I breath-in collecting particles of oxygen thorough the cavities of my body,
I picture-in information through my eyes,
I breath-out carbon dioxide,
I picture-out selected photographs.
When I take a picture, I tend to hold my breathe.
There is a strong dialogue between breathing and photographing. They both seem to be essential and existential, they both involve a mixture of controlled and uncontrolled actions.
They both can be considered the cause and the remedy of a lot of psychophysical issues.
I walk in front a small audience, it looks like I’m heading the procession of a funeral.
At every photograph I breath out a strange sound, an unskilled sound of a voice without gasp.
Every passerby can’t make their minds and they ended up with an hysteric laugh.
More I familiarised with the device and more I become addicted to it.
I walk toward the exhaustion and I become my own shadow.
