Studies on the Density of White

Studies on the Density of White is an ongoing photographic project started in 2010. So far it comprises hundreds of images taken in several locations across Europe and the U.S.
The absence of an actual, traditional subject requires time to ponder over the substance that is at the basis of the photographic medium – light. This way, our sight is pushed towards an abstract composition of geometrical color sections defined by different densities of white and grey shades. It is the gesture of photography that gives the image a different identity, thanks to the fundamental passage from 3D to 2D.
In this project an instinctive minimalist approach couples with a fond interest in modernist architecture. Both these fascinations act as filters and let the photographs become like drawings, where light textures isolate from their architectural context to design unexpected patterns.
