Photo by Davide Grossi Grossi was born in Parma in 1971. He is a photographer specializing in architecture and landscape, and particularly interested in the relation between man and territory. He grew up in the Emilia Romagna region, and adheres to the values of the “Emilian School of Photography”, owning his visual approach to photographers such as Luigi Ghirri, Giovanni Chiaramonte, Vittore Fossati, Vincenzo Castella. Also, he is particularly indebted to authors such as Stephen Shore, Lewis Baltz, Walker Evans and to the young Italians Italiani Francesco Jodice, Andrea Botto, Marco Introini and Marco Zanta. The monuments are here represented at night. The role of artificial light in the contemporary urban setting is fundamental to understand space and the way we relate to it. The gaze interprets the interaction between the architecture of the city and light, which is an essential part of the project in its multiple functions. Light is an element at the heart of artistic research, it is essential for the interpretation of a city, urban planning, and in general it plays a central role in our interpretation of the world. Light is a source of shocks, a powerful tool that can change our perception of the landscape and of what lays beyond us. Light is an extreme metaphor of modernity.
