“Scogli” is the Italian word for rocky artificial barriers set a few yards from the shore to avoid the tide from consuming fragile artificial sand beaches. The singular word “scoglio” also refers to the word “hurdle”, as in stumbling upon an obstacle that keeps one stuck.
After a few experiences abroad, I came back to my Italian hometown. 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”.
