The very first encounter between Edoardo Romagnoli and the moon has to be be traced back to 1990 and since then, the love story between the Italian artist and the elusive satellite has never come to an end.
Almost indulging the moon’s changing nature, Romagnoli always seeks her under her own terms: “I have to go to places where the moonlight doesn’t have to compete with unnatural light such as glare or reflections from street lamps. These are usually peaceful and remote places that are also conducive to thought and would be inspiring even without the moon”.
While most photographers try to capture as much light as possible, Romagnoli does just the opposite, allowing his favourite subject to glow with her own special light without adding any artificial enhancement that would deprive her of her mystery.
By pointing the camera toward the sky, Romagnoli engraves the darkness with cryptic messages, creating nocturnal visions which become as silent, mysterious and metaphysical as the moon.
Short Bio: Edoardo Romagnoli lives and works in Milan.
He started in the late ‘80s developing his own expressive search and since then he has been exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
The first photo of the moon dates back to 1988 and represents the beginning of his most known artistic career. His first solo exhibition was in 1991 at “Il Diaframma” of Lanfranco Colombo. The moon is an object of an untiring observation; Romagnoli makes it the protagonist of his long experimentations renewing in every release the original charm that ravishes him. The photos are realised moving the camera and they have been in any way modified in post production.
