The two photographers and their art. The images Nando Thus , through the technique of ” black style ” are modeled via a photographic etching technique dating back to the mid 1600s and used mainly for portraits , because of its ability to reproduce the most subtle nuances .
Almost abandoned in the mid- nineteenth century , this technique currently appears in the precious works of Italian Alberto Rocco and Japanese Akiko Chiba.
Just the interest in the works of Rocco led So to use a shooting technique that focuses on the dark tones , which, together with fine-art printing on Canson paper , it gives the images a characteristic velvety appearance and delicate shades of gray typical precisely the ” black way ” .
So the works of the protagonists of this exhibition , however, are different from the normal production of the author , whose style can be classified into what is called ” Street Photography ” or ” A report from the road.”
The shots signed by Sylvester Forasassi , however , prefer ” the essential landscape ” , made of countryside, cities , bodies of water , lines, profiles , clouds and mists , shades of gray and vibrant colors , where the landscape photography is the purest form and you need to give voice to the austere and extraordinary beauty that surrounds us .
