“…No, you will never know it. The only thing you need to know is if you are lying or trying to saythe truth, you cannot afford to make any confusion.”John Berger
Here is where we meet is a photographic series inspired by the homonymous text by John Berger. The images are matched to the text, with particular reference to its last sentence (see above).Berger asks the reader to consider the importance of knowing the difference; yet, the quote implies that you / I / we, can never know it exactly. The work experiences the possibility to escape from having a certain and recognizable subject, leaving the viewer the task of reconstructing the image from that missing element. This happens through a subtraction, whose meaning is traced not so much in an aesthetic practice as it is in the effort to propose to each image a "new form". The work is set up as a collection of independent images in which the subject is shown while developing. A point, a hidden fragment, a line that changes the horizon, the unlikely encounter of two animals at night, an opening hole through physical matter: all this becomes a pretext to seek forms of visual recombination, the starting point for new formal hypotheses.
Here is where we meet invites the viewer to seek satisfaction in the alteration of his/her perspective.The ambiguity of 'it' (the 'unknown' itself) always supports mystery and open interpretation.
