Entry Description

Il mondo che non vedo (The world i do not see) focuses on aesthetics and mysterious beauty of abandoned locations, still having a soul, a meaning as vectors of layering sensations and images that make them live, independently to our memory and our experience, creating a strange atmosphere of expectation, bordering the surreal. The aim I set myself was not to expose their dereliction, but rather to render the grandeur and magnificence of these spaces, which are now forgotten and on the path to extinction, and thus seem to belong to a parallel world. I was struck by shapes, lines and volumes when arranging my shots, but I was mainly guided by light. I seek to give my pictures a markedly rigorous quality, with a sharp contrast of light and shadow, as if to evoke bygone history and offer glimpses of a new one
