Awareness of nature (Landscapes) (1976-90s)
They are Landscape aerial photographs, more abstract and two-dimensional.
‘Through photographs of land I try to kill nature, to take away that life given by I don’t know whom and that has been destroyed by the passage of man, to give it a new life, recreated according to my criteria and my world vision. Nature is the mirror in which I reflect myself, because by saving this world from the misery of devastation, I actually want to save myself from my inner sadness. At times I even used an expired photonegative, a tool already dead, to emphasize this feeling, obtaining an effect of blacks that become one with the surrounding areas’ (Mario Giacomelli, written in the 90s).
