Photographer Federico Masini, fan of penguins and giga robots

In his essential biography, posted on his website, photographer Federico Masini tries to sum himself up as follows: “Fan of Nietzschean philosophy, Edgar Allan Poe, Kurt Vonnegut, TS Eliot, William Blake, Black Metal, Lars Von Trier, crap films, Great Old Ones, tears, big explosions, penguins and robot giants“.
It is in this whirlwind of cultural references and sensations that the Turin-based photographer’s shots are born. He is able to combine close-ups of human bodies and splendid landscape views thanks to his passion for travelling. He describes himself as “just a bit of a hippie really” but this component is indispensable for reading the variety of subjects and cuts in his photographs. It is not a monochrome tale that of Federico Masini but a wide range of life situations, verisimilar or as if taken from the theatre of everyday life.
Clenched teeth, bottles broken against rocks, a naked body abandoned in a lake as if it were Millais’ Ophelia, these are some of Masini’s visions, whose work can also be followed on his Instagram account.
