The author reinterprets coffee in its three stages (bean, ground coffee, drink), connecting them to three steps leading to RE_BIRTH: sensuality (picture 1), gestation (picture 2), new live, daybreak (picture 3).

Tostatura 120 BPM
The consumption of coffee, its addiction, the fact that subjects at “risk” continuously drown themselves in it, is deep-seated in our culture as well as in our head. Through the photographic medium, with this project, the author analyses himself and how the effect of coffee act upon his mind. Everything is reduced into three high points: preparation – consumption – explosion.

La storia di un caffè, in un caffè…
A coffee story within a coffee… A way to tell and represent the sharp contrasts of evolution a coffee undergoes in its cup when expressed. The aim of this section is to enhance the three most common stages – from the moment it is served to when it is being drunk – which constantly change its aspect, its colours and its consistency. The last stage only leaves a trace of its passage that turned into taste!
