Pino Musi was born
in Salerno in 1958. In the 70-80s he was influenced by avant-garde theater
which, togetherwith his immersion in the darkroom, brought him to the dramatic
use of black and white. Musis 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 Terragnis 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.
