Into a transfiguration
Photography is pure falsehood. The rectangle dissects reality, captures a part of it, and this part is the false, part of the total true. In these images I have chosen parts of reality. No computer tricks. Only what at certain moments the world can offer to the ruthless gaze of the artist.
Davide Gualtieri was born in Rome in 1973 where he lives and works. He started his artistic research when he was just 20 years old with theatre, then he graduated in Literature (history of theatre) and attended a master in Therapeutic Arts. His approach to photography stems from the need to explore the world with a new poetic. His artistic career is characterised by a love of looking for detail, scrutinising the unrecognisable, losing himself in the indistinct. Experimenting in search of a poetics is what keeps him alive. He loves to photograph works of art but does not disdain to bring his gaze into the chaotic everyday life of Rome.
