NO FASHION PLACES
2013 - ON GOING
“Getting lost in a dream, only to discover that the dream is the reality.
Shots that will excite - an instinctive, contemporary, authentic, unmediated photography that speaks to the heart.”
Yuri Catania's path arises from the need to embark on a journey away from the spotlight of fashion. His pictures belong to the Road. There are abandoned places and cities. Apparently common people and objects can capture the feelings in the hidden folds of the details, a subtle look that captures the great messages in little things. Photography is immersed in a dreamlike dimension where the images stand out, documenting over thirteen years of journey across the United States of America between the East and the West Coast, from North to South. They flow before our eyes, real life moments and experienced feelings, for a spontaneous, intimate and human result – in one word, emotional. A melancholic romanticism is the background to the narrative of his photographs where he loves to tell a reality, the American one, full of contrasts and contradictions. He like to find an added meaning in everyday life and immerse himself in it with his personal reflections. Through light and shadows, He tries to convey the emotion that struck me when he decided to take the shot. A journey through the urban landscape of the American culture of our century. Yuri Catania's journey - that today is yours, too.
