"Trieste Paint It Black"
The photograph captures the imposing Piazza Unità d'Italia in Trieste, at dusk, seen from the Molo Audace where the people of Trieste love to walk when the bora permits it.
The title of the photograph was inspired by the historical Rolling Stones song, Paint It Black,
where the author Mick Jagger took inspiration in his turn in the text Ulysses by the writer James Joyce
that he started writing just when he lived in Trieste, in particular in the verse "I have to turn my head until my darkness goes".
The choice of black and white for the analogy of the mood of the photographer Luca Cameli sad, because he had to leave the city two days later, with that of the protagonist of the song depressed for the disappearance of his partner.
In addition, the black and white choice highlights the architecture of the city.
The choice of long exposure times to give the rough sea, due to the wind, the "silky" effect where the lights of the city reflect.
