I have been following the photography of Pietro Broggini for around 5 years.
I’ve known him for about 30.
I categorised the images and chose the most repre- sentative
from the first one sent to the last from June 2013. Broggini loves philosophy, poetry, speed. A great aesthetic sense.
An excellent technical command.
Read Murakami. He loves white.
I would so love to make a monographic work of it. Perhaps an issue of Or not.
Contact the artist for a schedule of work.
Moleskine of Cristina_June 2013
1. Real city
The city by night and the city by day.
The city as a container for travelling souls.
The city as a wound.
Stairs as ascent and descent.
Stairs as entrance and exit.
Stairs as a transit from a lower to a higher level.
Shadow as a projection of its own double.
Shadow as a symbol and projection of absence of emotional reference points.
Shadow as an expression and materialization of thoughts.
4. Virtual city
The imaginary city as a place of the soul.
The metaphor of colours as a representation of the surreal and oneiric.
In time and space of dream, anything is possible… the ideal city.
5. Light rays
Light as a metaphor of individual spiritual enlightenment.
Light as a representation of the dynamism of thought.
Light as a vital instinct.
6. The white
White as an aesthetic synthesis of beauty.
White as an aggregate of all colours.
White as the colour of eternity.
In loving memory of Pietro Broggini
