“I started as a painter, and this background has definitely influenced my style.
I think I’m attracted to silhouettes and shadows; this characterises my photographic language in general but is especially apparent in this project.
My attention to shadow makes the reality I depict here more graphic and pictorial, while the depersonalisation caused by my protagonists’ silhouettes enhances the interplay between light, colour and shadow in the scenes, which helps the observer to catapult himself into this beautifully coloured world.
Burano is a small island close to Venice, Italy. With its myriad of colours, the island’s colour scheme is reminiscent of the multicoloured cities of South America.” – Mirko Saviane
