About the artist:
Bio: Mario Guerra is an Italian photographer. He lives in Rome and Chamonix (France). His photographs are images that abstract themselves in small details of few millimeters, enlarged at the excess, where photography abdicates its representation role to become something else. Looking for the existing beauty in the minute reality that surrounds us. "An intimate, minimalistic look which explores the nature of the material in its purest and most essential aesthetics. Details almost invisible to the naked eye, like inner landscapes coming to life with shades, imperfections, imperceptible tracings and secrets: like those of the human mind." (Ludovico Pratesi – La Repubblica) He has exposed in many europeans galleries, including The Saatchi Gallery in London, The Triennale Museum in Milan, The Ara Pacis Museum in Rome. He's professor for photography at the Design and Visual Communication Department of the University La Sapienza of Rome and at the European Institute of Design (IED) of Rome.
