Closed Doors

The oblivion or the gaping after passing through a door

Iron doors, steel doors, wooden doors, glass doors, doors without doors

The fancy ones, the old ones, the discolored and the newly painted ones, the humble ones

 

We get first impressions from doors when we enter a place. These doors sometimes open to a tiny street, a museum or a hidden garden.

Genova, Italy.

 

Portofino, Italy.

 

Closed doors keep the stranger’s eyes away from what’s inside. What’s left for us to do is to imagine what’s inside from afar.
