Michele Tagliaferria

Artist Website

Italian photographer Michele Tagliaferri (1980) tries to break the perimeter of the photograph by capturing the energy that was kept within the photograph; an invincible energy that creates, transforms and destroys the life that surrounds us. To Michele, every photograph is born to reproduce an image. The photographs in his photo series GRASS let the images return to the world it once came from; faces, stories and landscapes that are framed in a photograph.

Tagliaferri does not define a specific subject for his work. The photographer felt the urge to keep taking pictures and let them help him find the story that was unravelling. His series takes a look at the world around us. The juxtapositions create a continuous and dynamic flow in the narration and ignite a dialog between the photographs.
