Urban Visions (catalogue, book)
Urban Visions it's a long term collection of fine art photographs characterized by unusual, sometimes abstract views of everyday objects that surround us in the cities we live in. What truly catches my eye and intrigues me is the possibility of methamorposis: by focusing on a specific detail, isolating it from the context, playing with the size, it transforms into something else, something totally new. All while preserving its original harmony.
The cut that determines the final subject is never accidental. It is a conscious mental process, frozen by the click of the shutter.
