The result of many years work, the photographs gathered in A Drop In the Ocean date from the '70s and '80s and are but a few of the many thousands taken by the Italian Naturalist Sergio Romagnoli during his all too brief lifetime. The primary interest for the curators, Alessandro Calabrese and Milo Montelli, besides their natural human fascination for an incredible story, lay in the opportunity to interact with a rough body of images free of any artistic claim.
Sergio's images reveal themselves with a tangible purity; comforting companions during the many hours that the curators spent leafing through his archives, photo albums and ephemera. Seemingly simple yet highly proficient, Sergio's photographs demonstrate an acute visual sensitivity, closely connected to factual reality yet powerfully evocative of the viewer's own experiences; an evocation of journeys, encounters and study aimed at discovering, knowing and understanding. The act of seeing as common denominator.
