SHADES OF BLUE

A COLLECTION OF 40 VIERI BOTTAZZINI 1/1 NFTs ON OPENSEA

SHADES OF BLUE is one of my most personal projects, one investigating the deeper nature of the human soul.

In 2014, I first went back with a camera to a place where I used to spend my summers as a teenager, the Cinque Terre in Italy. Walking on those forgotten, yet familiar, rocky shores triggered memories and awoke the sleeping ghosts of summers past.

I started investigating the life of those rocky sleeping giants, existing and ageing in between two worlds, the underwater and the above-water. Like shades of blue, their presence is real and unreal at the same time, they appear for a brief moment only to disappear again when the water swallows them back. The project then evolved and took a life of its own, the camera occasionally embraced the sky, rocks made of ice and rocks made by man appeared. And on it went.

Shades appeared for 7 years, in 7 countries, and I photographed them. Now, slowly chasing the ghosts away and with them the blues, I keep walking my path of discovery.
