Photography and Digital Art Prize Finalist 2015
URBANITA' FUGGENTI (fleeting urbanities) by Andrea Barasciutti
About the artwork
This artwork, a fusion of photography, architecture and surreal world, is a synthesis of Baran professional experiences and it talks about forgotten urban forms. Baran explores the urban subject with the shooting and then he progressively detaches from it. In the subject without definition he discovers the true essence of things, the essence will stimulate the viewer to a psychological work and introspective analysis and reflection. These images envelop the viewer in a limbo of imagination. These photographs capture a moment that is more magical than real, with images of amazing harmony. They are sights of another reality.
