Sicily has fascinated me since childhood, long before I entered the world of art and began to capture the island with an SLR and before discovering watercolor painting and studying at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Noto. Only in the last few years I have focused my passion for photography on Sicily and I started the Photosicily project, with beautiful landscapes, urban photography and photos capturing old traditions of the island.
After several publications in Sicily, two exhibitions were born from a collaboration with the Galleria Gallaro in Syracuse: Extrovert (2012), in which I presented the “Apparitions – Extrovert Series”, and City Face Pinakes (2013), focused on portraits with references to the Pinakes of the ancient Greeks. I am currently working on some art projects, together with the art critic Giuseppe Carrubba, who has presented some of my photos in a publication of the series Cahiers d’Art, called Joseph Carrubba – Around human geographies (MACT / CACT, Contemporary Art Center & Museum Ticino, 2013).
