Campigotto-Argentina

Forty large scale, mostly black and white, photographs shot over 20 years by Luca Campigotto (Venezia, 1962), take the viewer on a trip through nature and photography, with historic and cinematic references. The intensity of light and landscape reign in these representations of memory and space, searching for the soul of the land itself, of a world doomed to disappear.
