About Francesco Amorosino
Born in 1984, I grew up in Rionero in Vulture, in the South of Italy. I live in Rome where I work as a photographer at my studio, il FotoStudio, and I teach in courses for adults and children and I give a course in postphotography in the two years master program of DAM Academy in Rome. I participated in several exhibitions in Europe, Asia and United States and in 2016 I won the Sony World Photography Award in still life category.
There are many worlds interconnected with ours, they are very close and yet intangible. Art for me is a mean of exploring these alternative universes, not for seeking clear explanations for their mysteries, but for gathering new questions and spreading divergent thoughts. More than a scientist I feel like an alchemist, whose path of investigation is more important than the ideal to be achieved, perhaps impossible even to glimpse. Photography is the main ingredient that I use, but I hybrid it with painting, sculpture, collage, video art, in a constant illusory game. My works could seem distant from each other, but looking carefully you can see the lines that connect them represented by themes such as the fascination for mystery, the relationship between superstition and religion, the perceptions of reality and our relationship with the virtual as the new frontier of our conquest of space.
