The fascination with analogue photography begins with the first contact with the darkroom, opening the way to the countless possibilities that photography could provide. Curiosity led to experimentation and the exploration of new techniques and materials, and that’s how Dissolutum Corpus came about. This is a project that brings together some of the experimental works carried out over the last few years, where the unknown and the improbable are the keywords common to all these projects that are interconnected in a cloak of experimentation.
The search for the unexpected and unpredictable results is the motive that leads the artist to make it, and the focus is not on the photographed element (despite the evident presence of the body in some images), but on the deconstruction of the support.
