Gatherings from Milan…
A theatre of people

Photoholik came at a funny time, after my last moving last summer I had gathered all negatives and positives into big moving boxes with the intention to keep them there till further notice. Now in the last days it was time to open those boxes to see what was in there. Hundreds of negatives that had never been scanned or seen the red light of a darkroom passed my eyes. From them I made a small selection with the mutual background that they were all taken here in Milan during my numerous visits the last couple of years.
Milan to me looks like a theatre of people and I do not mean extravagant, strange or outrageous. But more a lifestyle I did not know, a great tranquillity inside an immense buzzing metropolis that is crawling inside every free ince of space… Bankers, thiefs and laywers vs. saints, seekers and retired.
Sometimes it feels like Vladimir Horowitz rises from the Toscanini family tomb in Cimitero Monumentale to play one more encore and Scarlatti fills the air on the busy streets and squares, the only one moving in normal speed is me, and moments later it’s just “Traumerei” inside my head and it all happens around me, to fast to hang on…
Perhaps you think, just another countryboy who packed his bags and moved to the city, I won’t fool you, that’s true.
