Luca Tombolini

Luca Tombolini Milan | IT


Born in Milan. Completed humanistic studies before a degree in Sciences of Communication with a major in visual rhetoric in Italian cinema. “While studying at university I met with photography and started experimenting with large format cameras. Since 2011 I’m printing on large-scale prints; landscapes and life scenes.

In my photography, I’m following a fascination for desert primordial places. No other places are so helpful in making that mind shift needed to try to inquire beyond our limited lifetime. This process implies contemplation, the Self, the Unconscious, and the perceived reality.

I’ve found photography particularly efficient to make considerations about time, either when it’s clearly stopping it or on the contrary when it gives the impression of compressing time as if the moment pictured could have existed forever. The latter was the impression I had when I first developed the shots of the early landscapes series I did.”
