This book puts a point to the creative path of a life: the photographer reveals himself, shows his life, the everyday landscapes, the affections. Painting, photography, the handcraft ability, the sea, the town: everything is shown for the first time as a puzzle that builds day by day "the normal life" of a school teacher, an husband, a father, yet silently filled with creative vitality and feeling.
Each of the 60 copies is different from the other: each one is a surprise. As the use of recovery paper that acquires such a new life.
Domestic Landscapes is not just a photographic book: it is an artist's book, which reveals for a moment all the poetry and the mystery of a hidden soul.
