Jorney is, first of all, a state of mind, a condition of being that encourage us to look for revelation and move the most ancestral levers of ourself. Cantiere delle Marche cannot prescind from shipping. Journey is that dimension able to express the pardigm of meeting and confrontation, dialogue and experience, that turns men into navigators and travellers into explorers. Journey is that dimension able to express the pardigm of meeting and confrontation, dialogue and experience, that turns men into navigators and travellers into explorers. That is the point of departure and arrival to express the willingness to imagine and develop the best ship possible. In this way a yacht explorer is born, able to define a segment and to talk to a community of people who firstly choose to be travellers before being shipowner. Cantiere delle Marche enters into natural resonance with those who share levers and values which have always moved man to discovery and exploration. A new project is born that tells, through Adrian Blanco’s eyes, the surfaces as element of passage, between what is seen and what is hidden to reveal themselves to those who want to cross them. A journey, that is the central metaphor of the desire to deepen and to break surfaces. A narration that crosses the world to return from where it started, on a explorer vessel.

“What exactly is a surface? A surface is described as, “the outer face or exterior layer of something...”, and honestly as strange as it may seem photography and surfaces have a lot in common. A photograph is indeed an exterior surface that represents an extraordinary moment, it exhibits the very surface level of an experience”. Adrian Blanco

Surfaces is a surfaces graphic exploration seen by an abstract point of view. Adrian Blanco is the explorer who crosses and meets different surfaces and observes them with his personal magnifying glass on board the ship M/Y Acala by Cantiere delle Marche. The result are pairs of images that remind us that nature repeats itself and propagates equally in all its forms.
