Artist Blog

Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

Where does this melody come from?

Sep 23, 2022 - Rosa Lacavalla

I think each of us, following the river of images present in a photographic series, such as the musical one of the notes perfectly intertwined with the text, is enveloped by ancient sensations that come from the meanders of our memory.
Where does this melody come from?
Who holds it prisoner of a pain,
of a memory of a spell?
And perhaps this is the true beauty of photography, the desire to be the means to introduce ourselves into our melancholy system, beyond the artist’s autobiographical events.
