Intervista a proposito della mostra

 

40 fotografie di Venezia in bianco e nero, scelte tra le più belle di Serge Bassenko, di giorno, di notte e in laguna.
Scattate prima dei recenti lavori di ristauri (1973-1989), ci restituiscono intatta l'autentica, incantevole e romantica Venezia di un tempo, tanto amata dai Veneziani, e della quale gli innamorati e i visitatori di tutto il mondo sentono ancor oggi l'irresistibile fascino.
Venezia è probabilmente la città la più fotografata al mondo, pertanto, scopriamo quì con sorpresa una Venezia commovente e quasi sconosciuta: callette quiete, canaletti accessibili solamente in barca, notte oscura e misteriosa punteggiata dalla debole luce di qualche lampione, laguna segreta e selvatica. Ne risale un'impressione di intimità e di serenità che sembra attraversare il tempo, quella di una città dove ti senti a casa tua.
Serge Bassenko ha appassionatamente amato Venezia, ha trascorso quasi vent'anni a fotografarla, rendendo così omaggio a quella che fu, non tanto tempo fa, la Regina del Mare.

* TECHNIQUE

very good choice
beautiful presentation, handsome with the panels
beautiful: the night photographs with a black background
beautiful printing quality, beautiful stuff
the details are thin
beautiful black and white contrasts
many amateurs of black and white: black and white is beautiful, Ah! black and white photos, silver prints, it could not be so good in color
photographs on paper: better effect than on a screen, because of the paper grain, the photographs are larger, it's a bit distant to look at them, you have to walk from one to another

* PREFERENCES

each photograph is different, all beautiful
people really loved photos by night: how beautiful they are, by night! photographs by night = magic
by day: you are at ease, therein
lagoon: wild, very fascinating, astonishing, unknown, at least as beautiful as day and night photographs

* TRUE VENICE

I have found the exact atmosphere I felt in Venice a long time ago, that's Venice
past Venice, out of the beaten tracks
Venice has lost his soul today, like all modern cities > has become a scenery
completely different from usual photographs; these are good
it is calm, beautiful, you feel inside there
soothing, they make you feel good
you enter in Venice or you don't: you are taken into a cocoon, in the warm, yet you are free
that makes you feel like going there, really
you'd like to be there
magic photographs

* ETERNAL VENICE

time stops, timeless
no characters > timeless, immortal Venice
Venice = as a living being, one can understand that Serge Bassenko felt he was a friend with Venice, you never forget Venice, it is rather Venice that left us

* SERGE BASSENKO

Serge Bassenko has a look that makes you love
very personal framings
they seem to be film photographs
real artist, he sees
the photographs are like the man: peace and poetry
what you do is good: to put some beauty and dream in this world

* CRITICISM

the photographs by night would be better with a white frame to be emphasized
some night photographs are too dark, you cannot see the details
by night: a little sad
Venice was in bad condition at the time: rickety balcony, ruined rough-cast
music would be necessary to attract people to the exhibition
labels under each photograph would be necessary, not only single sheets
photographs often seem to be cut off, were they reframed?

* VISITORS' BOOK (a quotation choice)
