About the work

About the work

Series: Paisagem

Here Minelli, intentionally positioning the polaroid image atop the canopy of mist-shrouded trees evokes a sense of nostalgia, intensified by the faded and vintage aesthetic of the polaroid. “As Above, so Below” resonates, as a spiritual element unfolds. Rippling waves on the rocks contrasting with the serene tranquillity enveloping the trees above. It reminds us to be still and to appreciate the landscape around us.

“All of these works were created at the border between Portugal and Spain, where my studio is located. Many of the photos are captured within the studio, around its vicinity, or directly from it. I utilize flowers and weeds sourced from the roads along the border, as well as other simple everyday materials. I apply them onto photo paper using a spraying technique, akin to analog photo printing where you project a negative onto the paper.

The photos taken outside of the studio area typically depict transitional spaces, such as outskirts of cities, borders, and other limits. They serve as visual narratives of these locations, telling stories about the void present in these suspended areas.” — Filippo Minelli
