Victims, each one, for his own survival, how many breaths divide us? Vittime, ognuno, della propria sopravvivenza, quanti respiri ci dividono? Victimes, chacun, de la propre survie, combien de souffles nous divisent? Advertisements

Exhibition: Smartphone Photography in Art Gallery

Artwork by Milla Kazimir

Inner Travel Artwork by Milla Kazimir

Inner Travel artwork will be presented at WikiArte Gallery in Bologna for a collective exhibition, Jan. 4th to 23rd 2014. This is not a simple mixed-media artwork composed by photographic paper glued on a painted canvas, it aims at representing the role of mobile or cellphone photography into the contemporary art gallery system. Moreover it is also a symbolic representation of a journey towards and inside a mixture of dimensions. On a white canvas, within a black windy frame, lay nine photos printed on glossy paper. They were taken during a travel by train from Pisa to Rome through a smartphone camera, and shared on Facebook and Twitter in real-time. The low resolution and low specs of the mobile camera were fundamental, because I wanted to highlight movement and long exposure effects to create a fusion of time and space, a fluid closed container.
I was particularly happy when I knew that my artwork had been selected for the collective exhibition Premio Expo Bologna 2014, because my purpose was to present mobile photography in a classical environment, such as a contemporary art gallery.

Due to better and better technology applied to cameras embedded into smartphone and tablet mostly everyone can obtain quality results and, most important factor, can share it pretty immediately on social profiles. The expression “I share, therefore I am” (cit. Sherry Turkle) is now evident anywhere, anytime: just consider David Cameron, Barack Obama and Helle Thorning-Schmidt taking a selfie during Mandela memorial service, or that (mostly) anyone can take part to the iPhone Photography award. Smartphone and mobile photography is now considered an artform, but can we consider it already outdated? I am posing myself this question, because Google Glass use is definitely going to redefine photography in the next future.

Exhibition at Rosso Cinabro Gallery in Rome, Italy

ENGLISH – Three of my photographs are in exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery “RossoCinabro”, via Raffaele Cadorna 28, Rome (Italy), from November 10th, 2013 to February 9th, 2014.
These photographs were chosen from the “Existentialism” project, and are presented with particular frames, which I personally painted in black and gold acrylic colors: an unconventional and new way to expose photographic prints and to create an unique mixed media artwork.

Street Lights

Imagine yourself fallen into a dust and smog cloud, horn and tire noise, loud roaring, lost on a median island pretty in the middle of nowhere… If you feel excited about such a situation (I had a lot of fun, indeed, but remember, I’m a crazy one 🙂 ), then you should try taking some pictures like these. Below each photograph, ISO, focal length (for APS-C), aperture and time values are specified.
