Photo & Contemporary is pleased to present during Ouverture 2013 inauguration collective TorinoArtGalleries, the staff of Francesco Bosso (Barletta, 1959), known interpreter of the landscape and wildlife in b / w, in the vein of the great American tradition of Edward Brett and Kim Weston and Ansel Adams of the unforgettable and his followers John Sexton and Alan Ross, with whom the author has worked extensively in the USA.
The extraordinary mastery of the art of shooting outdoors with great size and virtuosity in the dark room with the now obsolete analogue process, allow the author to obtain wonderful prints rare and valuable fiber base papers that highlight the clean white and the depth of the tonal values and contrast.
Globetrotter by nature, after years devoted to ethnic and anthropological reports in several African countries and China, which led to some interesting photographic books, the author decided to devote himself to the landscape.
His research aims to isolate forms and natural elements in wild places, where the silence is absolute master. “The landscape is actually a vision of where they merge in a unique atmospheres and moods,” says the author, inspired by the poem Walt Whitman and an Eastern approach, almost Shinto towards nature that loves to be totally immersed.
The process of distilling patient and elaborate selection to the radical extreme synthesis, the one made by the author in respect of the places visited and subjects.
How keenly observes the critic Gianluca Martians: “The world is homogeneous in the eyes of photographer: the United States in the Seychelles, Italy to the Engadin mountains, you feel a thread that sews the different geographies to a consistent discipline of the look. Distances dwindle under the breath of view of the author, it disappears every social aspect in favor of a homogeneous global arrangement … Boxwood stops the moments and make them longer periods, it seeks out the meditative nature and a kind of cosmic consciousness of time … “
After the publication of the “White World”, a book dedicated to the many facets and density of white in nature, the author of 2012 is focusing his research on the incredible variety and majesty of the land in Iceland.
This series is called the “Golden Light” and is characterized by spectacular images with high contrast and light cuts, of which the exhibition will see some interesting and unusual specimens.
