December 31st (1997)

This series has been left unreleased until the publication of the book Mario Giacomelli, Under the skin of real (24OreCultura, 2011): of a touching fascination, openly autobiographic in which Giacomelli plays, and gets in the game, with his shadow (his alter ego) and with the faux animals from his last phase of production, putting on play a meeting with the depth of his being, getting closer to the people, his loved ones, from an infinitely distant past. Series of photographs taken during an afternoon waiting to celebrate New Year’s Eve in 1997 with some friends.
