Last September, when, during The Armory Show in New York, photographer Mattia Pannoni saw one of his works on the gigantic billboards in Times Square, everything must have seemed very real to him. This feeling is not to be taken for granted, however, as the works of the artist born in Isernia in 2000 are inspired by less tangible dimensions such as dreams, symbols of the unconscious and spirituality.
The shots are a way for Pannoni to look inside himself, positioning himself in an interregnum somewhere between reality and unreality. Through images and human figures Mattia Pannoni tries to see the invisible, in the photographer’s vision a necessity rather than a possibility for humans.
Utican, Overman, Interstellar, the titles of the photos suggest landscapes, which may be human (Primordial Humanity) or dreamt of (Primordial Dream).
