The uniformly coloured pinewood.
One of the larger gas fields was at Porto Corsini near Ravenna.
Synthetic rubber and chemical fertilizers.
The winter months were cold and damp.
The same object does not have fixed colours. A poppy can be grey, a leaf can be black. Greens aren’t always grass, blues aren’t always sky.
White smoke emerges noisly and engulfs the whole frame.

For Distretto Santa Croce 2018, Multiplo presents “Le Ore (Pale Blue and Green)”, an exhibition by Daniel Augschöll featuring a new selection of images from his series “Le Ore”. On the occasion of this event, a special edition of the book “Le Ore”, in a foil stamped slipcase drawer including a black and white fine art print, will be presented and available to the public.

“Le Ore” is a project developed in and around the Italian city of Ravenna, in collaboration with the platform Osservatorio Fotografico as part of their ongoing project “Dove Viviamo” which aims to create a visual archive of the city.
Daniel Augschöll walked for weeks in a hybrid landscape, natural and industrial at the same time, creating a new story of the city and its surroundings. An old sign, the night, the fog in the Po Valley, closed factories, new ones arising, the “Riviera”, pine trees hiding extramarital affairs. A landscape that is both sensual and melancholic.
In the book “Le Ore”, the photographic work is accompanied by “Desire”, a text written by Anya Jasbar originally conceived for “Le Ore”.
