Giorgio Possenti’s photographic practice embraces several fields including architecture, interiors, lifestyle, still-life, portraiture and fine art. He considers himself the author of each one of his photographs. There is no ontological difference between his work in any sphere. Research is inherent in Possenti’s creative process. This research extends in multiple directions and takes on different aspects throughout his work. He dedicates himself to experimenting visually with the idea of “essence”, something that cannot be realistically represented, since it does not manifest itself as a direct appearance but is present as an implicit meaning in objects, places, in their encounters and in their relationships. This utopian need to render the invisible visible leads to the investigation of the limits and possibilities of space and form. These concepts are at times translated as a path of dissolution and abstraction of the figure, and other times as a “subtraction that is added on”, where the fundamental elements are light, color, transitions, repetitions and differences. His work, can be viewed as a reflection on the status of the photographic image. More importantly it can also be viewed as a transcendent question; a fascinating and naive look into the mysteries that shape our world and the experiences we make of it. Giorgio Possenti describes his images as being characterized by a natural and enveloping atmosphere that arises from a meeting between structure and poetry.
