Massimo Cristaldi- Insulae (Negotiating Barriers)

This series of photographs captures what appear to be "islands of light" at night.

There is a sense of confined gloom fighting with darkness that all around turns into oblivion and mystery. This shroud of brightness envelops all things that are built as a defense, both the physical barriers and the light barriers.
The islands of light are US Navy housing complexes and structures located in the dark and silent countryside throughout Italy. They are confined and isolated "towns" that are built for American soldiers and their families. Similar towns exist all around the world.
