This is a picture from my project “Geotermica Potenza” which was started in 2011 and currently in progress.

This specific image is representing a cooling tower for the hot steam that springs from underground, in the region of “Colline Metallifere” in Tuscany.

I like the look of these plants, especially because they are fitted in a area of Tuscany covered of hills and woods, very green and also quite uninhabited. The geometry produced by the shape of the tower, blended with the silhouette of the pipes, makes me thinking at some alien space ships ready to take off from the Earth, But I was in a wild range in Tuscany.

The picture was taken with a 4×5″ view camera on Efke Infrared Aura black and white film, to date discontinued. This image is printed on Adox MCC110 silver-gelatine classic black and white fiber-based paper by myself in my lab.

The surface of this print is not glossy, not matt, not satin, not velvet. It’s Michele’s style, because I print on “glossy” FB papers but I don’t glaze my prints, instead I force dry them with a rotative hot dryer. The finished surface looks grainy and shiny at the same time.
