“The Valli di Comacchio have been home to fishermen for ages; they use fishing lodges mounted on poles – called ‘casoni’ – both to fish and to monitor illegal fishing. It is a hard life, and I wanted to create an image expressing the sense of hope for a good catch. Being very familiar with the area, after almost a decade exploring and photographing it, on a promising morning I knew exactly where to go to set my tripod and compose using one of my favorite ‘casone’. The sky looked beautiful, so I went for an unorthodox composition and decided to include a lot of it. When the sun rose, it painted the clouds beautifully; due to an almost complete absence of wind, I decided to go for a very long exposure, to add some sense of motion to the clouds; a little over 3 minutes worked perfectly for that.” – Vieri
