Portraits - Flavio Chiesa - ebook
Opis

Art and photography: an uncomfortable binomial, an approaching, especially in the past not easy and still nowadays sometimes seen with suspicion. Isn’t it true – we hear claiming – that all the history of contemporary art, beginning by Impressionism till later on coming through the avant-gardes, the abstractionism, nothing has been but a great, wonderful escape by the illusion of the truth that, in parallel, science and technique with their inexorable instruments brought to improvement with photography? But even if so it were, this wouldn’t be else except an ulterior merit of photography, a fact that by its own isn’t able to deny the concrete, crystalline possibility of this discipline to come into art. It’s suggestive the memory that reminds us of how the first exhibition of the group of impressionist painters was hosted, on the 15th April 1874, right in the studio of a photographer, Nadar, at the number 35 in Boulevard de Capucines in Paris...

Idea:

The idea to realise a photographic project like this one came about after years of carrying out works that pleased my clients. I then felt like realising a project that I liked, one that should please me and that is all.

Project:

I developed the project on around 40 portraits, of all ages, from children to the elderly. I can say that when the work was finished, I did not have many portraits of children, as it is a very incisive work not unlike caricatures. In fact, a few years ago, I got a caricature done of myself and the artist who did it told me precisely that children do not get them done. I had wanted to get one done of my son but the artist explained that children do not yet have defined features. I certainly had defined features and my caricature came out well.

Subjects:

In some of the subjects photographed, I am convinced that I have captured the essence of that person. Though sometimes some people can give the impression of being something, like Massimo, for example, who conveys himself as a light-hearted, friendly person who is a bit of a boaster. In reality, I saw him as a romantic individual and so I tried to capture him in that way, as a romantic person. Then, there was Emanuele’s portrait. I managed to photograph him inside Fraschini Theatre, the most suited place for the power of his voice. For Sandra’s portrait, I photographed her in a rose garden. As I know her very well, it seemed like the right setting to convey her strong character and adoration of flowers. The roses gave the sense of an explosion and mirrored her character, a beautiful flower with sharp prickles, quick to explode.

Final objective:
