I photograph common people, the ones we see in our everyday lives, but who enter into an extra-temporal dimension. The distance and height of the camera make the figures unrecognizable, undefined, almost shapeless, lacking contours, as if suspended in the void. They are unconscious actors of a representation willed by the photographer’s patient observation. The figures are taken from far away. They appear to be walking on tiptoe, and whispering.
My name is Pietro Sala. I was born in 1946 in Lecco, Italy.
