...to whom it may concern...
Those of you guys who are following my lomographic Italian holiday trip documentation already know that I had a great time in Italy - first with my "new" friends in Osimo, then alone, then with my "old" friends in Florence. But in these days I keep on thinking of what I experienced emotionally in Assisi. Most of you will have heard about "San Francesco d'Assisi" who founded the fraternity of the Franciscans. This guy was not too bad at all, he preached the renunciation of all secular values and lived the poor way like Jesus did - who actually was kind of a paradigm for him. Certainly a noble and last but not least important "sign" in a period of growing estrangement and decadence and violation of political and clerical power. My deepest respect for this guy. And now look at this photo taken in the enormous cathedral of "Santa Maria Degli Angeli". This picture is actually just a little example that I could photograph in a place where it is absolutely forbidden to take photos - and full of guardians. "The Catholic Christian Church" built a bunch of pretentious, rich, BIIIG churches, cathedrals and cloisters filled with gold and jewellery and purpure and frescos and sumptuous windows and precious minerals - behind fences made of spears and pointed blades... all in San Francesco's honour...... I won't go on writing because I know this is not the place to discuss these things. Just try to imagine what really pisses me off... I wanted to show you my divalent point of view of these magic places where several hundreds of people lost their lives on the building sites - which is another point of view - and unfortunately almost forgotten in our consciousness.This photo was shot on film. Taken by artichekt with a Lomography Horizon Perfekt loaded with Lomography Color X-Pro Sunset Strip 100 (35mm) film in Santa Maria Degli Angeli, Italy. These tags describe this photo: bullshit, altar, altare, san francesco, and santa maria degli angeli. Date: 2013-01-09. Time: Noon. This photo can also be found in the album POV.
