black and white photography with high contrast and flash by francesco merlini

Francesco Merlini Farang

In the time span of three years I’ve taken pictures in Italy, France, Turkey, Thailand and Kosovo. I took pictures of unfamiliar places, pictures of strangers.

The flash of the camera has consecrated my epiphanies, impressing the shroud that lies on the subjects whose truth I’ve discarded. These images are relics of the invisible.

Every picture has an undeniable subject, no space left to distraction. Every picture becomes a tarot card, a singular representation of a collective perception. – Francesco Merlini
