Nightscapes 2009-2013

Photography is travelling to me, and travelling is always connected with taking photographs. When I began creating “Nightscapes”, I already had planned a few years ahead, with a precise list of cities that I wanted to visit in order to complete the project.

Every day I watch the evolution of over 170 different buildings in China, the Emirates, South Korea or Malaysia. It’s an amazing feeling, being able to visit places whose growth I’ve been watching for a few years, being the witness to a gigantic expansion, seeing how the entire landscape changes from year to year, how new replaces old, and having the chance to immortalize those images before they become history entirely.

Every city I visit is different, but in this series I don’t care about capturing its character. I’m looking for elements that will constitute the wholeness of an architectural form and lights.
