Atmospheres: A Colorfully Dark Photography Project by Luca Orsi

Luca Orsi reached out and invited us to review one of his photography projects, Atmospheres. We were very impressed with what we saw. Luca captures the urban landscape in a very magical/dark way.

Luca describes this project in his own words:

To me photographing is telling a story through the subjects of reality, creating impressions and fascination that generates questions from the people who look at my pictures. If a simple picture can generate questions in a person who then tries to know more about what he is looking at, this is simply great. This is the purpose of this project “Atmospheres”: trying to represent the empty urban scenes in a nocturnal mood. A mood made of contrast, rarefied lives, bright lights and gloomy shadows, quietness and tension. Everything takes on a mystical charm which is so colorful but also dark, and all seems magical and suspended as if time was frozen.

About Luca

At the age of 18 I was given by my father who is a photographer, my very first camera. Ever since then I started studying the technique of photography by following him on advertising sets and educating my eye to the continuous observation of what surrounded me as a possible object of photographic interest. During college, using a reflex camera was my main way of self-expression. An education in Humanities and a passion for cinema, culminated in a degree thesis in the direction of photography in movies which gave me that continuing need to search the poetic atmosphere and the extraordinary within the ordinary.
