.Giorgi  1995: Ricci Guidetti























































A series of photographs based on overlays of two different types of images. The first images belong to a series of pictures I took with a disposable camera in Apulia during a vacation  showing some historical monuments and a sunset. The images below them, on the other hand, show Asian workers on an assembly line making disposable cameras already loaded with a roll of film; the women workers took pictures of each other during the work and then secretly reinserted the cameras in the usual assembly sequence. The combination of such different images gave rise to bizarre and cheerful overlaps that struck me due to the particular way the shots interacted. As if that simple disposable camera had intentionally fallen into the hands of an artist in order to make that sort of osmosis between two convivial situations public: the tender prank of the young women who managed to create “a space of cheerful time” for themselves, and my short but “spacious” sojourn as a tourist.
