Linear landscape #2 | Two miles of Shoreline between Ventimiglia and Bordighera
Linear Landscapes are a series of photographic reportages realized along routes, canals, coasts ….
They tell the history of man activities that have condensed and settled in these places over time.
The images are in frontal sequence from one end to the other.
A landmark like a roadside or a shoreline links individual shots into a single story, as music staff lines link notes into a single composition.
The coast of the Ligurian Ponenete runs parallel to the Via Julia Augusta (SS 1 Aurelia) and the Maritime Alps.
Along this narrow strip of land, which connects Italy to France, the construction of the 60s and 70s was concentrated.
The result was the fusion of the ancient villages in a single linear city without interruption.
