“There is no Away #3”. Edition of 7

CHF 1'400.00

In order to capture the pictures of this series, the artist traveled to Iceland and crossed its desert core from side to side, carrying his strange device and placing it within one of the most extreme and wild landscapes that can be found on earth. Yet, instead of celebrating such a beautiful panorama, the pictures convey a rather uncanny feeling; the landscape is definitely natural and unspoiled, however there is no place left which can be considered unspoiled and completely free of any human influence. The pictures have a clear dark appearance, almost gloomy, but by juxtaposing a clearly man-made object with the Icelandic wilderness, they seem to challenge the idea of what nature is and its relationship with humans.

The support used for printing the series is an extremely thin hand made paper, its peculiarity seems to convey a sense of fragility and its semi-transparence appears to imply something beyond the picture itself.

Diego Brambilla is an Italian artist, based between London and Zürich, who graduated from the London College of Communication with an MA in photography in 2015. Previous education includes a BA in Sociology and a diploma in Film Direction.

Deliberately mixing real and imaginary, he stages fictional scenarios and experimentally combines photography with sculpture. Drawing upon contemporary narratives about nature, the human body or science, his work challenges those concepts as cultural products and investigates their ability to reconfigure the meaning within a constructed imagination.

His work has received the PhotoX award and it has been selected and shortlisted for several competitions such as Athens Photo Festival, Voies Off Arles and PhotogrVphy Grant and it has been exhibited many times in London and in Milan. His work has gained the attention of the media and it has been featured in many magazines, printed and online, such as Fisheye Magazine, GUP, Wired (US and Japan), Dailybest. It has been published in the Paris Opera booklet and got featured on Rai3 (national Italian television).

In order to cap­ture the pic­tures of this series, the artist trav­eled to Ice­land and crossed its desert core from side to side, car­ry­ing his strange device and plac­ing it with­in one of the most extreme and wild land­scapes that can be found on earth. Yet, instead of cel­e­brat­ing such a beau­ti­ful panora­ma, the pic­tures con­vey a rather uncan­ny feel­ing; the land­scape is def­i­nite­ly nat­ur­al and unspoiled, how­ev­er there is no place left which can be con­sid­ered unspoiled and com­plete­ly free of any human influ­ence. The pic­tures have a clear dark appear­ance, almost gloomy, but by jux­ta­pos­ing a clear­ly man-made object with the Ice­landic wilder­ness, they seem to chal­lenge the idea of what nature is and its rela­tion­ship with humans.

The sup­port used for print­ing the series is an extreme­ly thin hand made paper, its pecu­liar­i­ty seems to con­vey a sense of fragili­ty and its semi-trans­parence appears to imply some­thing beyond the pic­ture itself.

Diego Bram­bil­la is an Ital­ian artist, based between Lon­don and Zürich, who grad­u­at­ed from the Lon­don Col­lege of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with an MA in pho­tog­ra­phy in 2015. Pre­vi­ous edu­ca­tion includes a BA in Soci­ol­o­gy and a diplo­ma in Film Direction.

Delib­er­ate­ly mix­ing real and imag­i­nary, he stages fic­tion­al sce­nar­ios and exper­i­men­tal­ly com­bines pho­tog­ra­phy with sculp­ture. Draw­ing upon con­tem­po­rary nar­ra­tives about nature, the human body or sci­ence, his work chal­lenges those con­cepts as cul­tur­al prod­ucts and inves­ti­gates their abil­i­ty to recon­fig­ure the mean­ing with­in a con­struct­ed imagination.

His work has received the Pho­toX award and it has been select­ed and short­list­ed for sev­er­al com­pe­ti­tions such as Athens Pho­to Fes­ti­val, Voies Off Arles and Pho­togrV­phy Grant and it has been exhib­it­ed many times in Lon­don and in Milan. His work has gained the atten­tion of the media and it has been fea­tured in many mag­a­zines, print­ed and online, such as Fish­eye Mag­a­zine, GUP, Wired (US and Japan), Dai­lybest. It has been pub­lished in the Paris Opera book­let and got fea­tured on Rai3 (nation­al Ital­ian television).
