The Monoliths were usually immense, imposing and very heavy stones. Our ancestors lifted them from the ground with great difficulty, worked them or molded them, and placed them in a place chosen as an indelible mark of their passage on this earth. The monoliths were idolized, becoming not only prehistoric works of art but sacred objects, respected as divinities.
Nowadays, monoliths can be reinterpreted by the wonders of architectural works. Increasingly complex to realize, monumental works that change the face of our cities, palaces, bridges, museums, become modern artworks
The images in this series want to enhance and reinterpret the architectural idea, with the use of light, with the language of black and white, and with a shot that projects them upward almost to clash with the sky, just like the ancient monoliths.
AUTHOR: Emiliano Pinnizzotto ITALY
Born in 1983, begins to take my first photographs from the earliest memories. Around the age of 18 i directs my photographic passion to Social Reportage, and begins, when it is possible, to travel around the world.
I'm specialized in social portraits, taken in a natural luminosity, with the exclusive use of light available, never constructing or altering the story or image.
I have various publications on magazines and on photographic books, and show my photos in numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad, the last important: India - Unusual Visions, in Museo Nazionale Delle Civiltà "L.Pigorini" of Rome in May 2017.
