The series presents deserted urban spaces, where reign a theatrical, enigmatic atmosphere to see worrying. The title refers to the term used in movie scenario, which makes it possible to define a place and time in which a specific action proceeds. Places which either are put in scene and arranged for the needs of the movie, or entirly recreated in studio, generally in the search for an illusion of reality. With the series Nighttime exteriors, the step is reversed: the photographs are carried out on spot which look like stage sets or built spaces. The images have a latent narrative character and are charged with a certain dramatic tension. It seems that an action has just occurred, or will take place in a short time. Thus, the spectator has the possibility to create, invent, build his own story, starting from its felt, its history or its imagination.
