The CAMERA Project Room - Italian Center for Photography, hosts Waterheaven solo exhibition by Francesco Bosso (Barletta, 1959), curated by Walter Guadagnini, director of the Turin institute. Bosso investigates the natural landscape in its purest and wildest manifestations, isolating forms and elements to interpret uninhabited places and highlight the profound meaning of the human relationship with its origins. A pupil of Kim Weston, grandson of the great master Edward, and of John Sexton and Alan Ross, assistants of Ansel Adams, for this occasion the Apulian photographer presents a work that comes from different series taken over the last few years, dedicated above all to seascapes.
Water as a creative force is at the center of twenty photographs also characterized by a meticulous printing process, which intensifies the cleanliness of whites and the depth of contrasts. With its constant flow - tells Bosso - water represents the primordial liquid that creates, models, modifies the world, in a continuous and eternal transformation. Waterheaven is a journey through images through the fascinating "creative force" of water, between vision and reality, a succession of evocations and fragments of memories. Some examples of Bosso's great ability to tell by means of light and form a lyrical and harmonious reality, of pictorial matrix, are the images of the waterfalls made in Iceland, included in the Golden Light series (2012), or the views of Last Diamonds (2015), series created in the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier, near the village of Ilulissat, in Greenland. While in the first case the author enters into a relationship with space and makes the intimacy of a place visible through photography, in the second it has collected strong emotions, the fluidity of such a shocking natural landscape [...], in order to document its fragility and warn of the negative consequences of global warming - Bosso continues. The images of Waterheaven are also included in a monographic volume published by Silvana Editoriale, accompanied by a critical text by Walter Guadagnini.
