In The Dark
by Cinzia Grimaldi, Marcella Fierro and Alessia Casagrande
A picture book of photography, a succession of everyday still-life objects that tell what normally happens when everything is immersed in darkness: a mountain of clothes to represent the Earth that spins, monochrome objects (blue, red, yellow and green) for resting colours, a branch for the breathing forest, an aluminium ball for the shining moon, fabric and broken glass for the birth of dreams. The list goes on, between realism, lyricism and suspended time, to accompany the child in an imaginary world deprived of light and to help get over his or her fear of the dark with a touch of poetry.
