“Raindrop Blues”: The Art Of Superimposition Photography By Alessio Trerotoli
“The rain washes memories off the sidewalk of life”, Woody Allen said in a old movie. Raindrops, like in a blues song, fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm, awakening, as they were called in XVII century, the “blue demons”: a suffused sensation of melancholia.

Born in Rome, Italian photographer Alessio Trerotoli graduated in 2009 in Disciplines of Arts and Cinema.

The right combination exists, but we have to find it.
