il Libro

Il Libro 1KM, nato dalla collaborazione di Altevie Technologies, Landscape Stories Magazine e Vulcano Unità di Produzione Contemporanea, contiene 82 fotografie d’autore che esplorano i luoghi del tempo libero in Italia.

82 immagini che ci portano nelle grandi città (Roma, Milano, Torino, Bologna) e in piccole cittadine di provincia, nei paesi e nei borghi. C’è di tutto in questo viaggio: spazi monumentali, paesaggi aperti, parchi attrezzati, campetti improvvisati, angoli nascosti, arene storiche, oratori, palazzetti, spazi autogestiti… Un viaggio sorprendente, capace di raccontare storie che ci rappresentano nel profondo.

Eccolo di seguito, sfogliato, filmato e pubblicato nel canale Vimeo di Landscape Stories dedicato ai libri fotografici.

1KM by Raimond Wouda, Céline Clanet, Jan Stradtmann from Landscape Stories on Vimeo.

Altevie Technologies asked three international photographers to ‘photograph the Italy of Altevie‘ and to do so by using one simple rule: look for the public space dedicated to leisure that was closest to the headquarters of one of its clients, so long as it was within one kilometre radius of it. Raimond Wouda (The Netherlands), Céline Clanet (France) and Jan Stradtmann (Germany) photographed sports fields and places of social interaction through witnesses that are able to stimulate new visions, perspectives, and hypotheses.

At the source of the project is the will to tell the work of Altevie Technologies without necessarily exposing their clients’ brands but instead by constructing a narrative of nearby places – the areas of leisure, seen as the reverse shot of the ones dedicated to work.

The result of this process is 1KM: a work of photographic research that investigates the public spaces neighbouring big businesses, factories, utilities, and R&D centres of Italian excellence. There is a bit of everything along this journey: monumental spaces, open landscapes, parks with leisure facilities, improvised sport fields, hidden corners, historic arenas, youth and sport centres, self-managed spaces… An unexpected journey, able to tell stories that represent us deeply.
