It’s again time to publish another book of the four volumes which will eventually collect the whole material from the 365(+1) Days of NEX-7 project. The second quarter of the project witnessed a particularly intense part of my life. Things got much more serious both at the office and at Rossini Photography, we moved from the former little flat to our new fantastic home, Agata moved from being an easy-to-manage infant to an incredibly demanding toddler, now almost walker, little talking princess, and finally I have been brought to Alaska for an incredible photographic adventure which will be published in less than one month.
Now I’m almost on holidays, the project is always demanding a minimum of organization, I need my Nex-7, my laptop, a broadband connection for the daily publishing, and the time for shooting, post producing, post-writing, and publishing.
The crazy thing is, these can sound like a lot of activities to cope with during holidays, but after six month since its beginning, the project is now sort of part of me. It’s like having it under my skin, whatever I am doing, wherever I am going, however I am feeling, I always feel the the urge to look for the daily shot and to think about the daily post.
To celebrate my connection with the project, and to keep it consistent with the cover of the first volume, where I decided that the project had to be the subject, I thought about “expanding” my neck-tattoo. I didn’t actually get the project’s title tattooed on my neck, even though I can’t assure that it won’t eventually happen. However the Aztec hand is a real tattoo, it represents both the power to create and to destroy that only humans and gods possess. This project is definitely keeping me on the creative side and away from my dark one.
