This is picture #7 of our “projection game”. Reality is never what it seems. It is the macro photography of the torn and defaced paper of an advertising poster on a billboard outside. What does it show? A cone of light? A moon at midnight? A luminous ball? An unidentified flying object? Or something else?… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#7 / REALITY IS NEVER WHAT IT SEEMS

This is picture #6 of our “projection game”. What does it show? It would seem a scene seen from above, from the windows of an airplane, while flying at a height of ten thousand meters: we see streets, squares, communication routes, urban districts … Instead it is something very close: a macro shot of a… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#6 / IS IT LIKE IF WE FLY AT 10,000 METERS IN HEIGHT ABOVE A CITY?

Instead it is a macro detail of the dirt left on the surface of a waste container. Since I started documenting, with the camera, the world of… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#5 / IS IT A FLOWER DESIGNED BY SNOW? NO, IT’S A…
In the beginning it was like the big bang. Everything was blown up, as in a great explosion of light and matter. Yes, they call it primal chaos. These are the suggestions proposed by this macro photograph, which is part of a series relating to a large outdoor advertising billboard. The layers of paper, once… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#4 / A GREAT EXPLOSION OF LIGHT AND MATTER: THE PRIMAL CHAOS?
Welcome to the “projection game”! Since I started documenting, with the camera, the world of the decomposition of materials, people have always been spontaneously pushed to see, in my macro images, worlds and dimensions that I had never imagined. I think it is one of the most interesting aspects of my research project. Today I… Read More “PROJECTION GAME”#3 / THAT BLACK HALF MOON IS WATCHING US …

Pantone has chosen the yellow color – also in combination with gray – as the color of the year 2021. During my chromatic research of the “Lacer / actions” project I encountered several situations in which yellow was predominant in the color palette.

Someone wrote that my “Lacer/actions” artworks – macro photos of torn posters and urban materials – are a sort of evolutional forms by which some unidentified and indefinite entities try to communicate with us… At first I smiled hearing this comment. Now – after having “captured” strange and unusual images in thousands – I’m not… Read More CITIES,WALLS AND SIGNS: STREET MACRO PHOTOS #4
