Landscapes, as they could not be more beautiful and lonely. Symmetrical arranged mountain ranges and peaks, staggered in the depth. The digital works of photographer Fernando Maselli appear almost meditative. The images of his series „Artificial Infinite“ show nature – but an artificial landscape, a corrected nature, constructed from original images and various digital techniques. The results provide new sensory experiences, the viewer loses himself through the staggered composition of the space in a sublime illusion of depth.
„I take my pictures after long expeditions into wilderness and spend several days until I find the right moment for taking the photo. I consider the technical factor an important element in my compositions, so I work with large format cameras or elaborate photo manipulation processes that allow me to build artificial landscapes, based on fragments, cuts, repetitions and overlaps. My aim is to approach various manifestations of natural landscape in an empiricist way, linking them to my own sensory perception and from a neutral view, free from value judgements.“ – Fernando Maselli
