  • First monograph dedicated to contemporary Italian photographer Giuseppe Mastromatteo
Full Description

In this first editorial monograph, Giuseppe Mastromatteo (1970) collects the results of artistic research conducted through fifteen years of activity. His shots start from people – faces, bodies – and then technology is used to create visual effects that, by altering the features of the portrayed subjects, lead to an unexpected world, offering complex food for thought. As in the Eyedentikit series, where the photographer’s gaze overlaps with that of his models, eliminating the distance between the author and his subject in a courageous act of fusion that raises questions about the concept of identity. With Indepensense, then, we witness a border crossing between senses and body surfaces, in a mixture of human beings with a surreal flavour that inspires a meditation on the understanding and acceptance of diversity.

Text in English and Italian.
