Quattro nature morte, 2021

"Four Still Lifes" is a small series of studio images with which the author reaffirms, as so often in the past, the primacy of aesthetics, of the pure pleasure of form, over the sociological and documentary contents specific to humanist photography. In this little cycle he pays homage to the authenticity of the real and the obviously and inevitably subjective beauty of matter, which through choice, juxtaposition and composition of objects, he complements and completes with metaphysical, symbolic or ironically allusive references.

"One can travel the world and see nothing. To achieve understanding, it is necessary not to see many things, but to look carefully at what you see." (Giorgio Morandi)
