'I need a timeless dimension. So I try to remove most of the things I see. To remove is for me an
imperative. I must remove everything that does not belong to me. And that is somehow
corruptible.' Mimmo Jodice
This work aims, as is in the spirit of the above-mentioned words, to combine, in a timeless and
ideal amalgam, the most 'corruptible' and earthly part of the photographer's work - his socio-
political shots of the Sixties - with the subjects dearest to him, such as the sea, the
sky and the ancient world, so that 'the past - always to use his words - breaks into the present'.
This creates a virtuous circle in which these two worlds, by clashing dialectically, revitalise each
other; one gaining in purity, the other in factuality.
