A summer in Sicily: Daniel Farò’s visual diary

-
Claudia Fuggetti

The Italian-German photographer Daniel Farò, after spending an unforgettable summer in Sicily, developed the photographic film with which he wanted to document his experience. Daniel, after living in Sicily for 19 years, has now settled in Berlin, although he always carries in his heart the image, the flavors and atmosphere of his land, for this reason his intention was to “go back where it all began”.

It was a lovely time spent in my motherland through the lens of a tourist, reminding me of all the beauty that Sicily has to give.

Daniel’s images focus on the details that make the island so magical: from the juxtaposition of turquoise oceans to the warm tones of Etna, to the documentation of sudden climate changes. The delicacy of his images encloses the essential and genuine things, typical of the location in which they were taken, but it is not only about this, because the experience lived by the artist is also the visual diary of a journey undertaken with his closest friends.

Daniel’s journey begins in the eastern part of the island, at his parents’ house, at the foot of the benevolent giant, as the Sicilians call him: Etna. The presence of the volcano helps to give a palette of colors ranging from deep red to black. After moving south to relax on the beautiful beaches of Noto and Calamosche, the photographer and his friends went to the city of Agrigento, continuing west to the Scala dei Turchi.

During sunset, a white cliff formation rich in limestone turns all shades of gold; surrounded by the wavy blue sea it was a perfect visual moment.

Daniel’s experience ends with a sumptuous lunch with his friends, luckily not everything ends, but you can relive it through the images.
