MAURO MARINELLI: BURDEN OF WINGS. Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg, 2014. 112 pp. with 97 col. ills. 24 x 18 cm. ISBN 9783868285642 In English.
Publisher's description: I used the Polaroid as a painter might use a sketchpad. I shot freely and, as the images appeared, I loved how the Polaroid interpreted what I saw. The limitations of the plastic lens softened the features captured in stone; the softened stone wings became real wings. Mauro Marinelli's iconic cemetery images captured on Polaroid juxtapose the inherent contradictions of the immediate moment: instant and everlasting. In homage to the sixteenth-century style of Nature Morte, the stone of mortuary sculptures softens like flesh and graveside tokens and bouquets of flowers depict life becoming death.
