Overview

From monumental industrial architecture to the interiors of strange machines, from night views of cities flickering like active volcanoes to gleaming high-tech laboratories, from neat boxes of fruits or vegetables to the sprawling agro-industrial farmlands of Argentina--the photographs of Carlo Valsecchi alternate between precise figuration and poetic abstraction. Devoid of human presence, these large-format images often adopt unexpected vantage points, which initially destabilize our perception and then encourage us to engage more actively with the image. Although much of his work clearly occupies the strong tradition of the industrial landscape developed by the German school (Becher, Gursky), Valsecchi inhabits his own expressive register, with a soft palette and nuanced chromatic scale.
