The photographer believes that his art is a communication object with the world, a connection with viewers, in order to seek the mobilization for the unexpected, for poetic, for "fantasy from reality”, not something merely aesthetic. “I want my picture to be the unexpected, subjective, the not obvious, the surprise of seeing other vestments. Deconstructing a logical picture. The possibility of getting disregard the practical world and go for a sensible world, without much explanation, where things speak for themselves. Shooting for me is a resource that I use or to document something important or to mobilize the other with my way of looking at the world. I discovered through my photography that people see the world in completely different ways. As each of us sees? Through its sensitivity and repertoire of life. A number of genetic components, Historic, ancestors, cultural. The photograph allows show my sensitive way to see the world, people”, concludes Andrea Fiamenghi.

We live bombarded pictures all the time, largely because of the different social networks, which they have become tools in the mass production of images. The conference aims to reveal to the viewer – living this moment of photography trivialization, with images increasingly wordy and without authorial character – “what's unique and special look of the chosen photographers. The decision to submit photographic series of each artist comes just state that the works were weighed and measured with the accuracy of the technique and the art of passion, with the care of the thinker and the artist's creation”, comments Silvio Pinhatti. Through a wide range of jobs, You can identify what each sees as beautiful photographer. “Enlarge these images, expose them side by side - gauging meaning to each of these works - is a noble way to rescue the photographic art”, Full curator.
