Art Description

Photography: Color, Photo, Digital and C-type on Paper.

In the photographs that I realize, reality is transformed through a rigorous work on objects; the choice, the juxtaposition, the description, and the light, never emerge from the logic of reality, but from personal inner visions.

In my work, every object wants to be protagonist, no matter how far or close it is from the focus of attention.
Every object embeds juxtaposition, proximity, or distance in relation to other objects. They are taken out from their regular context and their normal function. They make it to the scene in an indefinite space, where they acquire new symbolism that can be interpreted in many possible ways.

The intention of my work is to evoke silence, calmness, wait, emptiness, disquiet, mystery, and beauty… the graceful state of a poetic moment.

Because of these characteristics, the photographs are closer to paintings than to pictures, even if they are realized employing photographic gear and almost non-existent post-production. The result comes from the shot, with slow steps and many variations.

In order to obtain the composing synthesis, during the composition I take away and replace the objects until every single one becomes irreplaceable.
The aim is to reach an atmosphere that is filled with the austere essence of the objects – where nothing can be added or taken away because every object becomes necessary.
