12.00 PM a promenade along The Leas
[Starting from the Memorial Arch] Folkestone.
I breathe-in collecting particles of oxygen through the cavities of my body,
I picture-in information through my eyes,
I breathe-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 involuntary actions.
I walk in front a small audience. It looks like I’m heading the procession of a funeral.
At every photograph I breathe out a strange sound: an unskilled sound of a metallic voice.
Every passerby can’t make their mind and they end up with an hysteric laugh.
More I familiarise with the device and more I become addicted to it.
I walk toward my shadow picturing a one last breathe.
