Of void and lost things

When you look at the void you can’t see anything else. Father and mother through the lens of absence, focused on a wall of increasing noisy white, conspiracy of the universe against the human beeing, pure flesh fallen apart in its own misery. Void is the answer to all the questions, the speaking trace of a solitary evil: no thought, no words, just this beauty in the dark and the sadness of the morning light. Painted like a dress in an old factory, several women cheating theirselves for the reason of living, working, singing, sipping poorness in a steel basket full of rust, the exodus of existence is a cruel fantasy.

Hell is the texture of a wrinkled skin, a mind-numbing silence made of thorns, it is green and red and black and white, everything surrounded by a fallen heavy sky. There is no way to survive to the hecatomb of beeing, to the massacre of passing by. The road of a new scenario: a concrete body for colours and light. Beauty is surviving under that dirt on a stone sculpture, behind a closed window in a dark and stormy night, through the voice of kids whispering secrets far above the hills. Of void and lost things. This void, these things.

Luca Brunetti was born in Rome, in 1990. After graduating from DASS at La Sapienza University, he worked in film as a production manager, completing then a three-year Masters at Scuola Romana di Fotografia. At the sametime he worked as assistant to two photo-journalists and co-founded a film production company, Jaws Production.
Through the years he worked together with FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano), the Goethe Institut (Centro Culturale Tedesco) and OMAR (Osservatorio Malattie Rare).
He obtained various specializations in post-production and pursued several personal projects about identity, published in many onlinemagazines such as Origine Magazine, Perimetro and Art-About.
His style moved in a more experimental direction, keen to use a new language, after his work with Yogurt Magazine, since 2018. In 2020 he and a partner founded the online magazine Fotonica, as a space for the research and promotion of artists who share the same idea of experimentation with the photographic medium and the same interest combination of multimedia and photographic linguistics.
