Photographer: Andrea Buzzichelli's Series “YOU ARE TEMPORARY”

Andrea Buzzichelli began photographing in the 1990s. Since that time he has worked on numerous photographic projects. His is a personal search and does not pretend to recount anything beyond that which he observes. Many of his shots are individual and do not easily lend themselves to falling into traditional categories or portfolio groupings. He sees photography as a potent antidepressant and he cannot live without it. Mostly involved in fine art photography, in recent years he has developed a strong interest in professional photography , specializing in fashion and advertising photography. His work has been exhibited in Italy and abroad, in cities including Florence , Milan, London New York, and Saint Petersburg. He has most recently exhibited as a member of the "Collettivo Synapsee" (www.collettivosynapsee.it) which has created and produced a series of exhibitions on show throughout Italy.

Andrea's series “YOU ARE TEMPORARY” takes us to where nature predominates, where the passage of time is almost absent, marked by the eternal alternation of seasons, man has two choices; to feel as part of the whole and let himself go with the flow of infinity, or to feel himself even more overpowered by the precariousness of being a thinking being and sensing the painful fascination of his own interior rhythm, which renders him almost extraneous to the magnificent and inexorable harmony of nature. My aim may be ambitious, but in my images, I would like for the viewer to be able to perceive the incalculable distance between the grandiose spectacle of nature and the reverent beat of a human heart in contemplation. The use of the Polaroid offers a "rhythm" that escapes time as we understand it and this escape is inevitable. Connect with Andrea on his Website!
