Working on my participation at Artrooms Fair London 2019, January 11-13
I am interested in a photography that looks for the visible in order to show the invisible beyond the reality as it appears. A threshold of visual and spatial perception.
My photographic style is influenced by my obsession for time and my vital passion for arts.
I like to have a slow and close approach with the subject, trying to discover in the shape of a sculpture or a building the same delicacy and softness of the human body.
Nowadays, waiting for the right ray of light can be a challenge with the fast daily routine of a big city and Roma isn?t an exception.
Nevertheless, its amazing heritage is a powerful combination of past and unique art history inviting to an aesthetic experience.
I feel that the only way to understand old and ancient art is to make it participate in our own life and this is exactly what I have tried to realize in my project, Borromini and the discovery of light.
Focused on the works of the great architect Francesco Borromini (1599-1667), my photos show a web of cross-references and related impressions that, surprisingly, can be interpreted by each spectator in a different way.
In such a visual intermingling, past, present and future become faded notions that reveal an unlimited potential of shapes and compositions.
Their value goes beyond space and time, just like the atmosphere of Roma, la città eterna.
