Akin 2/2 – by Francesco Taurisano

“It is man's mimetic faculty in the widest sense that brings together what seems split and divided; the wholeness of the universe is sustained, Benjamin suggests, by “natural correspondences” that in turn stimulate and challenge man to respond by creating analogies, similarities, something that is akin”. (Demez, P. 2007: XXV, XXVI)"
-Francesco Taurisano

Francesco’s work contributes to the critical reframing of landscape representation in contemporary photography. It offers the viewer a multi sensorial reflection on our appreciation of the landscape, in which imagination, memory and nostalgia for the past provide the opportunity to explore cultural representation of place. This strategy reconnects the viewer with the classical aesthetic representation of landscape, taking them on a journey that privileges the everyday and the rediscovery of the non-places that have become unfamiliar in modern society. This approach to landscape is inclined to study how the land and its inhabitant are changing, and how they have transitioned from agricultural to a post-industrial economy.
