The photographic project was inspired by Charles Laughton’s 1955 film “The Night of the Hunter”. Black is the River is a transfiguration of a famous place, the Po River, through darkness and unrest. Fascinating elements can change perception and move it to the dimension of magical realism.

Silence, isolation, and darkness become writing instruments of the landscape and your own unconscious. The viewer is invited to a place where reality can open up to imagination and suggestion. Visual background and sensibility become guides for new individual stories.

All photos are part of a larger series and are digitized from a medium format film.
