Legacy

Photographs: Manuel Bravi

Legacy 01
In the 60s hand tools were still hand made by metal workers who were involved in solving technical problems in factories: designing, building machines, making tools and facilities. My grandfather was one of those artists of metal.
As he is turning ninety, and I am turning forty, I am finally recognising his legacy as an archaic craftsmanship and an authoritative father. 
These still lifes are not only portraits of his skilfulness, but the process of its recognition itself, emphasised by the use of the lightpainting technic, which linger on every detail as a form of meditation.
