Pino Musi
was born in Salerno in 1958. In the 70-80’s he was influenced by avant-garde theater which, togetherwith his immersion in the darkroom, brought him to the dramatic use of black and white. Musi’s visual experience has been influenced by many fields of interest: from anthropology to design, from industrial production to architecture where he ends up focusing his attention. He has elaborated several monographs dedicated to the works of international architects, among them we can cite the "rereading" of the Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp by Le Corbusier. To interpret Terragni’s synthetic design, for the first time Musi uses computer technology in the delicate job of removing the traces added to seven of the most important works of the Como architect. As if by osmosis, his eye becomes more refined, editing and framing the surrounding landscape, eliminating or emphasizing fragments of reality. The result of this study is a series of large format black and white photographs.
