The Roots of the Air

The sky and the earth are opposites but their roots are in common: one cannot exist without the other
Air has no residence: essential, rarefied, intense and profound, it enhances the dialogue between heaven and earth.

My four roots

Our existence, birth, transformation e death depend on and descend from the interaction of the four elements: water, earth, fire, air – particles mixed in variable and sometimes disharmonious proportions. Two forces allow the elements to interact: love, the force of attraction, and discord, the force of repulsion.
In my work, the four elements are the bricks of life.

Breath of Heaven

Photography is no longer the vigil eye that
appropriates what it sees, no longer the lens that
captures that which appears; it is a metamorphosis of seeing which becomes an introspective eye powerfully penetrating the soul of things: this is the intertwining
of science and consciousness.
This unicum is the “Breath of Heaven”, defined as
sublimation and rarefaction.
It is a sort of return to the divine project, in which
creation is not static in its morphology: it is the eye and soul of the artist which enters the meanders of essence.

Linear Alchemies

“Vast, virtually unspoilt deserts, frozen lands and mountain ranges, that inspire fear due to their magnificence. My lens focuses on matter, decontextualising landscapes, isolating details, shattering images, in search of beauty, simplicity, purity; the true essence of things.”

Edizioni Dietro le Quinte, 2016


Cruel Colors

“Danakil: a paradise that calls to mind the creation, the genesis, pure beauty, the earth in movement moments before solidifying.”

Edizioni Dietro le Quinte, 2015


“Great deserts, lagoons, places where water and earth interact and vie for space; such environments have become a new dimension in which creativity regains its raison d’être. Panoramas are no longer a mere matter of scenery, but veritable landscapes of the soul, reflecting the feelings they arouse.”

Edizioni Dietro le Quinte, 2014

Ethiopian Blood

“It is difficult to see things as they are.

Nothing is as it seems; our feelings, our thoughts give shape to the things we observe… I am attracted by single details of the body. I seek the invisible with the visible. Vision is fluidity… The lifeblood of any population is its history, its course of life.”

Edizioni Dietro le Quinte, 2013


India – Frammenti d’identità


“Rossella Pezzino De Geronimo uses details to recreate a journey of the soul and into the soul of those she meets. The rational planning of life experiences gives way to the ability to let feelings rise to the surface, moving in harmony with those one meets and establishing an intimate dialogue with their inner selves.”

Stefano Papetti

Women of Burma

“Burma! A country full of light, and light is very important
for a photographer, who writes with light.
Burma was a place of learning and personal growth for me.”

Silvana Editoriale, 2010
