MELONI MELONI by Gerry Johansson [SIGNED]

スウェーデン人フォトグラファー、ゲリー・ヨハンソン(Gerry Johansson)の作品集。イタリア、ラヴェンナのボスカ通りで2014年から2019年の間に撮った写真で構成された一作。

Meloni Meloni」リド・ダンテに続く道を
ドライブしていた私は視界の隅に看板を捉えた
何て素敵なんだろう!
メロディーやメランコリーという単語が頭に浮かんでくる
私は急に良い気分になって、車を停めて、ボスカ通りを歩き出す

本書の基となった作品は、2014年に撮りはじめました。いつものことながら、私は幸運な偶然に恵まれてインスピレーションを得ました。ある日のこと、写真の研究施設オッセルヴァトリオ・フォトグラフィコ(Osservatorio Fotografico)に招かれてラヴェンナに来ていた私は、ラヴェンナ郊外のクラッセとリド・ダンテの間の小さな道を運転していました。その時『Meloni Meloni』と書かれた看板が目に飛び込んできたのです。なんて素敵な看板だろう!メロディーとかメランコリーという単語が頭に浮かんできました。私は急に良い気分になって車を停め、ボスカ通りを歩き出しました。4~5キロほどの短い小道です。郊外と田園地帯の間を走る、イタリアによくあるタイプの道。もちろん、楽しい気分の時には大いに興味をそそられる道です。それから数年の間、私はそこに何度も戻りました。撮影をした年ごとに分かれた4つの章で構成しています。どの年も私は『Meloni Meloni』の看板から歩き始めました。」―ゲリー・ヨハンソン

Meloni Meloni. In the corner of my eye I see the sign as I drive
down the road towards Lido Dante. What a wonderful sign!
My thoughts goes to words like melody and melancholy.
I immediately get in a good mood,
park the car and start walking along Via Bosca.

My work with Meloni Meloni began in 2014. As usual it was a happy circumstance that got me started. I was in Ravenna on a commission for Osservatorio Fotografico, and one day I drove the little road between Classe and Lido Dante, just outside Ravenna. In the corner of my eye I saw a sign with the text Meloni Meloni. What a wonderful sign! My thoughts went to words like melody and melancholy. I immediately got in a very good mood, parked my car and started walking along the road Via Bosca. A short little road, maybe 4-5 kilometers long. A fairly typical Italian road on the border between the suburb and the countryside. But of course very interesting when you're in a happy mood. Over the years I have returned several times. The book has four chapters, one for each year I photographed and in each year the walks begins at the sign Meloni Meloni. -Gerry Johansson
