... in Naples we were shooting all day and, at night, we developed our films in the improvised darkroom put up in the bathroom of the small flat where we lived. While loading the tanks and preparing all the rest, sounds and noises of the neighbourhood continued to infiltrate, pervading the atmosphere. People watching TV in their cubby holes with windows open after a torrid day, scooters with rigged mufflers, conversations, quarrels, whistling and songs arising from the timy alleys of Forcella. The city was permeating us night and day. Our prictures were developed while soaking in this unique and unrepeatable human primordial soup.
