Light Painting

Lightpainting is a photographic technique that has always fascinated me. The magic of the atmospheres of the still lifes of Harold ross I was inspired in the first decade of the 2000, but it was only with the proliferation in the last years of the works of the artists of the Light Painting World Alliance, Which Tom hill, Maria Saggese e Jason Rinehart, that my passion literally exploded. It is probably also due to my scientific studies, but being able to manage the light as if it were matter, to create things, then landscapes and at the end of the real paintings, awakens in me the same fascination as when I heard of it in Unversity for the first time of "wave-particle dualism".

From 2018 onwards my research on brushes and transparent materials begins, allowing me to appropriate the painter's gestures to make what he paints with light. With Polaroid this research has intensified, fueled by the fascination of the possibility of creating unique works, not exactly reproducible, returning value to the material, which has unfortunately disappeared in the era of digital photography.

And in the end here they are my work, in the continuous pursuit of new ways to do what I still can't do, and in an attempt to make it systematic and less casual (but not entirely, because the instinct has its charm ) what I do. Yet every day I discover something new!

As a polaroid enthusiast it would have been crazy not to try my hand at lightpainting with Polaroids once Polaroid Originals had started producing instant cameras that would allow long exposures and in general manual adjustment of some parameters. However my first instant lightpaintings were performed with the Sx-70.
