Luigi Visconti is keen on urban landscapes. He is allured in cities with architectural asperity and story to tell about their historical background. Visconti captures faces of cities with a great accuracy, as an architect will do to build his model. He uses both silver and digital equipment, his pictures are often huge dimensions to allow the limitless viewer's wanderer look.
Luigi Visconti took his first great sizes in Abu Dhabi. He is inspired by the architectural diversity of towers still in work. His "Vertigo Cities" 2010 Series, Luigi Visconti stands on New York, Dubai and Shanghai rooftops to draw the contour of these innovative cities which reach the sky. Graphic and colorful urban slides give us such a powerful contagious energy. In La Havana, "Vertigo Cities" 2011 Series his lens is closer and presents a poetic and intimate view, at the heart of the city centre where he snaps ordinary life scenes in an amazing place with old American cars and stripped plaster frontages.
Further, it seems like we are part of the photography like a spark life at the street corners or at the balcony. The city is standing full of light even damaged but beautiful and proud of its palpable colonial gleams.
