“Scogli” is the Italian word for rocky artificial barriers set a few yards from the shore to avoid the tide from eating the fragile artificial sand beaches of my Italian hometown. The singular word “scoglio” also refers to the word “hurdle”, as in stumbling upon an obstacle that keeps one stuck.
After living a few experiences abroad, I came back to my Italian hometown of Arma di Taggia. I later noticed how often I went out for a walk, taking pictures of the shore every time I ran out of ideas, or felt I was running out of steam, or was about to give up photography for good. I later consolidated these periods into a personal diary called “Nothing to sea”.
