The dawn of mankind, a time with no rationality. An ancestor contemplating the cosmos perceives the necessity of a divinity. The Second Cosmogony takes place along with the miracle of self-thinking consciousness. In that moment he knows he exists for a reason; he’s got the significative element and this had found a way to reveal itself to him. Conscious and Unconscious got together in the creation of the Self.
Luca Tombolini – born in Milan. Completed humanistic studies before a degree in Sciences of Communication with a major on visual rhetorics in italian cinema. While studying at university he met with photography and started experimenting with large format cameras. Since 2011 he is printing on large scale prints; landscapes and life scenes.
About his photography Luca says: 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 enquire 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.
