"The glass walls which seperate public and private space have reduced our chances of privacy, taught us to ignore those around us and to expect to be left alone"

When taking photographs Marangoni avoids eye contact to capture the private inner expressions of individuals as they move/live in today’s often unfriendly public places. For children it is natural to stare at other people, until they are told that it is rude. Marangoni learned to be discreet. He is a people watcher and photography enables him to have a subject to look at, stare at, if you like. Often urban architecture today seems to have ignored the need for ‘inner privacy’ by creating spaces that are isolating, even menacing. The individual is ironically placed in a situation of being alone together.
