Tennis Courts II

Giasco Bertoli - Tennis Courts II
Livre d'artiste (une série de photographies oniriques de courts de tennis vides).
« I like to photograph tennis courts when they're empty, deserted, abandoned, or in disrepair, and sometimes simply when it's raining and no one's around and they can't be used. Seeing them in such a state has, for me, a special kind of eroticism, like the memory of a former lover one still feels for. Each court is in the midst of a landscape, near homes, among trees, or next to streets or buildings. Some are like the ghosts of a tennis court, with faded markings and sagging nets, where too many seasons have passed and not enough care has been given to them. Gathered together, these unoccupied tennis courts engender a special kind of metaphysic, one that relates to the ceremonial combat of an organized competition; the aesthetic atmosphere in which freedom and struggle flourish. Seeing courts in such varied states as these is like coming upon a memory, a new beginning, and another possibility all at once. »
