Giacomo Tiberia says about himself:
“I’m 34, I’m an engineer and I come from Frosinone, center of Italy, city emblem of the province. Always fascinated by the world of images, I found the camera means to stop everything I thought beautiful and important, both from a dynamic point of view than static.
I started to make photography a newly daily commitment, tackling it both technically and culturally, and with my friends I started a confrontation and a constant exchange. I’m building a pathway linked to the image and the formula of the diary story.
In the last year I photographed mainly in film, as well as for the final surrender reasons (pasta, evocative power), that for the temporal distance that is created between the image and vision of the same, which led me to give more importance to the photographic process as a whole.
In the future I would love to be able to attach images to a photo project; thanks to the gratification of some independent publications, mainly on the web, I realized that it is easier than I thought to reach an audience.”
About ‘River Park Memphis’:
At the end of October last year, I went to the United State on a business trip, specifically in Memphis (Tennessee), and I had the chance to visit the city for many hours thanks to a mild weather.
It was a particular period for people there because Halloween was approaching and it was the final phase of the presidential electoral campaign. The contrast between the effects of these two events was very particular; there was a strong media pressure and the overall atmosphere was tense on one side, and celebratory and carefree on the other.
I tried to describe this ambiguity by walking around and mingling with the crowd, exploring the city and the Mississippi Park, highly symbolic for the Afro-American community.
