A photographic experience that combines the best of scenery, landscape, nature and the wind – here is a collection of images that can truly be appreciated for their artistic detail. The work of Lo Schiavo is beautiful. His ‘Wind Sculptures’ photography series is a remarkable union of theatrical sculpture and nature. In a range of locations across Europe, we get a juxtaposition of a human cloaked in a low-weight, billowing aluminum sheet against which the wind buffets, and a scenic landscape that is conveyed in perfect lighting.
What we get in these photos is the essence of the wind. Standing on a body of water, for instance, a human firmly grips the gold, NASA-developed weather blanket, isolated and surrounded by the glistening ripples. The wind is captured by the lens in an artistic long shot, which faultlessly portrays the mise en scène of the landscape and prevailing gust of the wind. In another photo, the aluminum sheet sails through the bitterly cold air. The lighting captures its bright gold color, juxtaposed to the remote, white, snow-covered mountains. This impressive project has been toured Italy, Greece, France, Switzerland, Portugal and the UK.
Having studied architecture in Rome, specializing in 3D Visualization, the London-based photographer is highly skilled in editing and computer graphics. It shows in his full photographic range, as well as his other series ‘Art Currency’ and ‘Ad Vivum’. The intricacies of ‘Wind Sculptures’ are truly an epitome of photographic skills and creativity of the highest degree. Lo Schiavo’s photography has been exhibited in London, New York, Istanbul, Rome and Munich. Simply put, his work is inventive and imaginative, and definitely not to be missed.
