100 Self-Portraits by Luca Pierro

Published Nov 25, 2011

Very interesting series by Italian photographer Luca Pierro.

“The works of Luca Pierro express a micro and macro cosmos, where the figure of the artist, who is also the one who photographs, forcefully enters the scene. The protagonist of the portraits is the same photographer. There are shots in his intent to escape the “already seen” to “already done”. He explores new and unspoiled paths, from the point of origin of man himself, with the use of natural elements such as: flour, land, water, clay and so on. All elements that lead back to “Mother Earth”.

For the artist is important the traceability of the material used to leave on the surfaces portrayed. The body becomes the vehicle of expression. The artist undermines the concept of traditional portrait (beautiful) to introduce viewers to new dynamics. Offers us portraits full of meanings, sometimes with a strong provocation. Some of them put us in touch with the contemporary research in experimental theater. So the artist is able to establish with the viewer an involvement immediate and spontaneous.”
