Images, photos and more pseudo-sightseing

stuff to see
* or not *

Italiano per favore!

For those who can't read,
or those who have already read too much in their lives,
here there is a possibility to surf Quagliaspace
looking ony at the pictures.

The galleries are organized by years, events or themes. Inside the galleries, hypertextual links allow to reach also the personal homepages of the depicted persons, if available, or to easily move through the years and the events. Links are yellow and background color is red when you pass over with the mouse.

Beware: galleries scroll horizontally, not vertically!

Roberto the mutant

Roberto today
after the latest mutation
A few decades of life shrinked into a few dozen of photos. The various visual identities which have flown through my face in time, different haircuts, human envelopes I've interacted with by the practise of sociality. Yes, you are right, I am a mutant and I change my appearence in time. Here you have the prove.

10 images a year

Every year of my life narrated through 10 photos. But that's not true. Sometimes the photos are many more. Sometimes many less. There is no justice in the years. And, by the way, there is no justice in the photos either. Many events and people which have been significant in my life do not appear here, however, because the photos of them don't exist, or I don't possess them anyway. There is no justice even in depiction.



More than anything, science fiction conventions that I've taken part to, + famous authors, assorted trips and more.

The Entire Collections, on the right column, show all my photos of the event, in chronological order, without captions but with thumbnails. They are usually very many. Usually, only people who have taken part to those events themselves would like to go through all of them, or some fanatics who wants to see Absolutely Everything. But also surfers with an Internet connection which is too slow for the Essential Selections.

The Essential Selections, on the left colums, present you with a reduced and more reasonable selection of photos, with captions which tell you who is who.

The "Entire Collections", however, are presented with thumbnails, which then open the full sized pictures one by one, which again can be a good way to see the galleries.
In the "Essential Selections", on the other side, all the pictures are loaded and shown together, and even if they are middle-sized the amount of bits to transfer is huge and the page may take a long time to load if you are using a slow Internet connection.

Make your experiments and chose the best way to see the galleries.

Very coloured photos - A collection of quite unusual photos realized by yours truly in the eighties starting a cooperation with my friend Gigi Picetti. More than 90% of the photos has, as a subject, a female face, or body, since anyway you have to point your camera lens somewhere when you make a photo, and then it's definetly more reasonable if the landscape you're focusing on really deserves your attention. However, to make the female faces less prevedible, one couldn't resist to transmute it a bit by use of loads of pure photons, no other tricks nor electronics. For lovers of strangeness, a jump to watch this gallery shouldn't be harmful.

Remains of RQ's Ego
have been liofilized here. Old gallery of images of yours truly, now almost useless since I've up put better galleries, which you'll find in the upper part of this page. Entrance here is only for fanatics or time-losers.

My surrealistic political campaign which perfectly worked, and the prove is that then I was elected...

You may find other things to watch on my Credits page.

And if you like stuff that moves and makes sound you may take a look at the Video zone, even though most of the stuff is on Italian (but something is on English too)
