Le Tracce

"Le Tracce" is a Saharan journey into deep southern Algeria; a tale of absence; of the lack of familiar references, and of spaces resistant to signs of human presence. Fleeting traces, fragile and incidental, but also prehistoric; traces of the force of nature and of the passage of time. Paved roads, dirt tracks, oil wells, shacks, street signs, automobile and animal carcasses, graffiti and imprints are artifacts which acquire meaning projected onto the depth of the infinity of the desert and are assessed before being swallowed by time. Traces which reaffirm themselves indelibly in the soul when one travels at these latitudes, toward a distant horizon.
