Guy Tillim seeks a non-monumental Rome, a continuation of his previous project, Avenue Patrice Lumamba, which arrives here with him. Africa is a gargantuan concept, as Ryszard Kapuscinsky mntioned in a conversation when he participated in the first edition of FOTOGRAFIA international Festival of Rome, and Africa is in Tillim's mind and eyes as he embarks on this first project away from Africa. Tillim seeks the middle city, the middle light (the rainiest winter in years is a privilega for him); he seeks an idea born out in his extended watching of neo realist cinema, which he re-elaborates in the field. In this middle city, the most complex thing is scale: how near, how far? Much lies in this strong tension of the quest for scale in the middle city, where Tillim is alone, free to think, to approach and to move away.
