The author’s interest in the deep interconnections between space and time led him to explore the intricacies of these realms through a study on ballet, the evolution of human’s innate way to experience both of these worlds in a volatile moment.
The artist has personally designed and created a set of special equipment in order to be able to examine the subject from innovative photographic perspectives which translate into different chapters, each of which, investigates on a different aspect.
RELEASE DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
The extemporary set contains images which are part of no particular series but they are the results of the author’s improptu research.
They may be consequences of pure experimentation or preliminary studies for a more extensive work
In this series the author encourages the spectators to make an effort, shifting their mental endeavours from a purely aesthetic point of view, having to cope with their imagination to completely formulate the images, which happen to be shot in an unnatural manner: from behind the back of the subject.
The completion of the image therefore relies entirely on the viewer’s mind, not only from a graphic point of view but also from a content perspective: the human component is constrained at its minimun and the whole surroundings are also disguised by veils.
The spectator is therefore called not to witness what the artist wanted to depict but but he wants to see for himself.
Shot between London, Paris and Torino, Alessandro Vasapolli’s “Early Works” is a collection of images selected among his works dated before 2018.
It is during these years that Alessandro ultimatly defines the traits of his aesthetics.
Deepening his knowledge into the technicalities of colors and light, he develops his unique technical approach to photography in order to achieve what will become the final printed image directly in camera, without the need of any post-processing.
