Paolo Giudici

PhD Work

MA work

The last school day was over and I could finally go to the seaside with mum and grandma.

After lunch my father gave me my first camera. Every summer promise was contained in that Agfamatic 50. I loaded the film cassette straight away and started taking pictures from the balcony and my bedroom window.

Don’t waste them! –

But nothing else happened that summer of '77. I recently found a lab envelope with the 12 prints and negatives inside: the sunny garden, the empty road and a trip to Venice with my parents one autumn weekend.
