Time is not counted from Daylight but from Midnight

by Marco del Pra


Photographs: Marco del Pra

Publisher: Scalpendie Editore

Year: 2020

Price: 28.50

Comments: hardcover

Marco del Prà's work is of an expressionist matrix, it does not start from a defined initial project, but rather grows on itself, during the various work phases. It is a research of a procedural matrix, of great expressive power in which it makes no sense to try to read, to interpret what we are facing. From the indical matrix, typical of photography, del Prà reaches an iconic work, which could refer to some action painting, to the black and white works of Emilio Vedova, a beloved painter, by whose strong gestures Marco has been fascinated since he was a boy. The title of the work and therefore of the volume is "Time is not Counted from Daylight but from Midnight", the time is not calculated from daylight, but from midnight. They are words from a song by the American reggae singer-songwriter Vaughn Benjamin, words listened to obsessively hundreds of times, day after day, which have become part of his poetic research. We talk about light and time, concepts at the basis of photography.
