"Das Tor von Elea (The Gate Of Elea) is made of photographs of the frame of a rusty, eroded gate that I found at the foot of the ruins of the ancient greek city of Elea. For me, it's kind of a self-portrait of the surrounding volcanic landscape of the Cilento (Southern Italy), and surprisingly associated with the work of Parmenides of Elea, the greek philosopher, who lived and taught here once.
