"It's hard to talk about photography without facing issues of time, memory and death - not as stereotypical archetypes,but as challenging and malleable entities of culture and nature." Domingo MilellaThis first published monograph by Domingo Milella is a photographic journey from his hometown in the outskirts of Bariin southern Italy, taking us to Mexico City, Cairo, Ankara, Anatolia, Sicily, Tunisia, and as far as Mesopotamia. Milella'ssubject is cities and their borders, cemeteries and villages, caves and homes, tombs and hieroglyphs - in short, signsof man's presence on earth. His interest is the overlap between civilisation and nature, and how landscape and architectureare invested with individual and collective memory. These photographs emerge from and challenge classicalideas of landscape in art history, and seek an alternative iconography in which an almost forgotten past coexists withthe present. Says Milella: "Making images doesn't only mean documenting or taking photographs. It's also a possibilityfor contemplation and recollection. Building an image of the past is to face the present, and activate the possibilityof the future."
