Art for art's sake

In 2010 I started working side by side with different artists, documenting their creative processes, their spaces, their relationship with other artists as well as their daily life. My curiosity was sparkled by a personal and growing interest in how a work of art takes form, wether it is a painting, a site-specific installation, a performance or a musical piece. Many of the artists I have worked with have become great friends too, so the photographs are part of an everlasting conversation with them. In other cases, the pictures are part of assignments trough which I had the chance to meet great artists and partecipate in nice art festival.

Giusppe Caccavale at MACRo, Rome

This series of pictures was shot at the MACRO museum in Rome while Giuseppe Caccavale and his assistant Ivano Troisi were working on Caccavale's last piece for the exhibition "Dall'Oggi al Domani: 24 ore nell'arte cointemporanea".  The pictures have been taken both in digital and anagogic medium. I wish to thank the artists, prof. Antonella Sbrilli who organized the exhibition and her assistant Michela Santoro.
