I

began collecting and keeping scrap prints and test strips from the darkrooms in 2010 when attracted by a tiny black and white picture that had been scrapped by somebody and dumped in the trash, I decided to make it mine and bring it

home. The tiny rectangle of fiber-based paper and the building printed on it had something of the ancient miniatures: crispy and detailed, carefully framed, deep blacks well balanced by a wide range of grey and white tones. The photo itself had nothing special, it was random. What made it look special to me was the contrast between a certain attention to details, given by a nice exposure of the paper, a proper framing and a pleasant contrast, and the inaccuracy that at the same time was standing out through the carelessly-trimmed paper and the yellowish colour symptomatic of a hasty processing. The tiny print ended up sticked onto my closet door, and so did many other ‘rejected’ pieces that now, in this book, are shown as found artefacts.

prived of a title: indexical representation of unknown places and unspecified times, each photograph assumes a dimension that goes beyond the taste and the artistic conventions, it is a

memory

and moreover it is someone else’s.
