"A child said, What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands; - How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he." (Michele TAGLIAFERRI)

"Because of its own nature, every photograph is born to reproduce an image. Faces, stories and landscapes are all framed and fixed forever within the four corners of the print. Nevertheless, it would be wonderful if these corners could be somehow opened, thus breaking the perimeter of the photograph and letting the image return to the world it once came from.

Every thing, every person, every single image is imprisoned within its own figure, within the corners of the shape it has fallen into. But if we manage to scratch the surface enveloping it, it is possible to grasp the energy kept within. An invincible energy that creates, transforms and destroys the life that surrounds us. 
The photographs in GRASS search for this energy. - As we do." (© publisher's note)


"Der junge italienische Fotograf Michele TAGLIAFERRI hat hier ein rätselhaftes Buch vorgelegt: lauter Ausschnitte aus Fotografien und jedes Bild natürlich einen eigene Fotografie. Dahinter steht die Idee, das fotografische Abbild zu befreien.

Die farbigen Fotografien strahlen eine besondere Kraft aus, die der niederländische Buchdesigner Sybren (SYB) KUIPER einmal mehr gekonnt editiert und inszeniert hat." (© Richard G. SPORLEDER)
