Coney Island features the traces of the splendours of the past throughout a hard battle against those who see it as old-fashioned. Since 1979, when Walter Hill directed the movie "The Warriors", so many waves have shattered on its beaches and urban experiments have rapidly changed its aspects, while undermining its survival.
Ettore Moni is a Parma (Italy) based photographer. He documents contemporary visions of urban landscape and personal project whit a large-format camera (4x5). No post-production was carried out for these pictures. "I love portraying natural and urban landscapes and I like to detect the signs of the changes that mankind has been carrying out. These changes are frequently not aimed at improving our lifestyles: they are nothing but signs. Humans are absent. They have left their signs, their tracks and I like to evoke individuals through their intervention on the landscape."
