Nocturnes in a Lapse – Filippo Rivetti
Italian-born photographer Filippo Rivetti, who now resides in Sydney, is a master of motion controlled time lapse and hyper lapse photography. In his exhibition Nocturnes in a Lapse, Rivetti uses these platforms to record the night’s sky creating a series of surreal landscapes that pit an active and enveloping sky against a static earth.
In Rivetti’s images the stars become swirling patterns of light in the earth’s orbit, the moon looms large against a black sky, the humans silhouetted against its glow mere shadows and the Northern Lights dance across landscapes that appear otherworldly.
Rivetti, who trained as an engineer, applies his technical skills with a love for landscape photography to dramatic effect.
