Every story has a place. Whether it represents the starting or the ending point, it does not matter: it will inevitably stay with us forever.
There are places (and stories) always vivid in our memories that have the power to bring our minds back into spaces,spots, sounds and smells that we will never forget.
Sara Batacchi celebrates her childhood becoming a tourist of the places she observed, as a child, behind a windowpane or playing in the streets.
With the gloomy light of the evening, she draws an essential landscape, seasoned with the subtle presence of her sharp and quick gaze..
“Suburbs/Sundown” is an open, unfinished project focused on the city as its main protagonist.
Sara avoids what is already alive and known of this territory, this location, and decides to add value to the outlying zone: the neglected and unattractive views become the first actors of her pictures.
The railroad, the street lights, the geometries are the most loved key elements, which return both in the memories and in the shots of the author.
Color harmonies and framings take us on a brief journey through the streets of Florence and throw us into a daydream in which we seem to be strangers who walk aimlessly and observe from the below the city just before the night.
This is how Sara gives us back a bit of her life, makes us walk next to her in the Florentine suburbs, entrusting us with her eyes and telling us her story shot after shot.
