64 photographs, 2 artists, 7 students, 3 itineraries...

The first open-air exhibition dedicated to photography, organised by Galleria LaLoggia in Carona, is almost here! Three different photographic itineraries wind through the alleys of the village’s picturesque centre, reconnecting us to the artistic and cultural tradition of Carona, located in southern Switzerland.

Two of the itineraries are dedicated to Ettore Silini and myself, both of us pretty well-known photographers. The third one, however, is dedicated to photography students of the CSIA art school in Lugano.

I have chosen to show photos of my journeys in Siberia and Mongolia. In Siberia, I documented the life of the Nenets, a nomad tribe that lives from reindeer farming in the Tundra and whose survival is seriously threatened by global warming and the massive petrol and gas production. In Mongolia, I documented the Kazakh eagle hunters whose slowly disappearing tradition is considered one of the most admired falcon arts on the planet.

Ettore Silini represents a much more familiar and yet lesser known world. His photos show local insects, depicted in their whole beauty thanks to macro photography - close encounters that reveal unbelievable details and colours. The insects show up as personalities, and it is this way of portraying them that represents the uniqueness of Ettore’s images: his aim is to not only document the morphology of the animals, but to create a portrait unveiling the beauty of these creatures who have lived with us forever but are still rather unknown to us.

"Exploring this small universe which we step on daily. Unveiling  the beauty hidden in simplicity and in an unusual reality," says  Ettore Silini (www.ettoresilini.ch). Taken on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III  with an MP-E65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro lens.
