Hot off the press!
Legendary photographer Marco Glaviano has just released his 15th book.
The book, titled Anamorphosis features the artist’s most recent series of photographs which reaches into his own artistic roots.
A great nephew of the Futurist, Gino Severini, Glaviano grew up surrounded by the Italian avant-garde and was always fascinated with the process of transformation. Glaviano’s relationship to Futurism reveals an interesting aspect of photography that demonstrates how Cubistic structure echoes the endless search for the right image: with this series Glaviano exposes all the varying angles and planes as his eye zigzags through space.
Glaviano is obsessed with the glorious transformations and underlying structures of diagrammatic viewing. Furthermore, Glaviano is obsessed with the fluorescence, science and wondrous technology of the computer and its modern ‘anamorphic’ abilities – like the Futurists praise for the coming of a new technological utopia.
The title of the book makes reference to Kaspar Schott’s ‘Anamorphosis’ (1657), which demonstrates Enlightenment preoccupation with instruments of science and amusement.
The book is available exclusively at Space SBH and the artworks contained are available as large format fine art prints. For more information, please contact us at [email protected]
