Galleria Bianconi is proud to present "Mishka Henner – Davide Tranchina: Free Fall", two main figures of contemporary photography.
Curated by Walter Guadagnini, the exhibition presents unpublished works by the two authors, in dialogue with each other: Mishka Henner exposes the series called "Turbines ", dedicated to the presence and reinterpretation of new elements in contemporary landscapes such as wind farms. Turbines continues Henner's exploration of how industry has shaped the American landscape. "Despite all the problems and complaints against wind farms," Henner says, "I consider the turbine and its propeller to be a beautiful sight; a pinnacle of design engineering that harnesses an invisible but constant resource.
On the contrary, in the cycle entitled "The Persistent Gaze" by Davide Tranchina the attempt is that of nullifying every movement of the gaze, so that the obsessive repetition of the frame induces the observer to concentrate on the innumerable changes of a subject in continuous becoming like the horizon. The window becomes a device to reflect on light, and therefore on the molecule itself of photography, as Tranchina says, "Photography itself is a window on reality. To immortalize a window is to reflect on photography."
