The photography that I'm going to propose and which is part of a photographic project, is closely linked to my way of life: a set of estrangement, decontextualization and photographic gratification.
My initial purpose was to bring the concepts of pictorial abstraction into my shots, using only natural elements.It is a paradox to speak of an "abstract photograph" because, in itself, photography immortalizes what is real. So I decided to call my project more generically "non-figurative photography".The idea that I have followed is linked to the production of images that did not have a classic subject or composition, but a composition based mainly on shapes and colors. In my shots, I do not want to eliminate the subject, but remove it from the context in which it is located.This is not a choice, but a compositional necessity, which allows me to transmit to photographs, that estrangement that I myself go to seek when shooting and that gives me serenity. The same serenity that I sometimes miss in my daily life because of the extreme sensitivity with which I face it.It becomes therefore necessary to cut out a space to be able to decontextualize myself, for a moment, from the reality that surrounds me.Photography for me turns out to be a way to express all this.
Author: My artistic journey does not have very distant roots.
I began to be interested in photography in 2012 by participating in a basic photography course, from there the interest grew and I participated in several courses to learn more about possible notions about the world of photography. At the beginning it was just a pastime and I had neither a precise photographic genre nor a real project to follow. What fascinated me about photography was that it allowed me to completely estrange myself from reality.
The key that allowed me to get to this project was the participation in a photographic composition course. This gave me the basis for creating photographs with a completely new compositional vision: "composition through forms".
The reading of a text that combined art and photography made me know the thought of two artists like Malevich and Kandinsky, in which I found myself completely.
In the last months I started to develop a new project trying to bring the concepts of these two artists in my photographs, choosing nature as a subject.
