The human eye is not capable of taking in an objective reality. It does not see things as they are, for it is subject to the will of a thinking being and to that being's emotional state.
For this reason, every human view of the world is only partial and is in some way skewed.
I utilize photography in an effort to go beyond, or at least involve the "deluded" viewer in an attempt to arrive at a single reality. It is a sort of game of comparison with a truth which is not necessarily deeper, but certainly "other." There is always something which escapes one's view and our sense of certainty decreases the longer we fix our gaze; we are amazed as an almost entire parallel world becomes manifest. The choice is ours whether to consider it imaginary, or, on the contrary, to hold it as all the more real.
“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”. - Anais Nin
Andrea Buzzichelli began photographing in the 1990s. Since that time he has worked on numerous photographic projects. His is a personal search and does not pretend to recount anything beyond that which he observes. Many of his shots are individual and do not easily lend themselves to falling into traditional categories or portfolio groupings. He sees photography as a potent antidepressant and he cannot live without it. Mostly involved in fine art photography, in recent years he has developed a strong interest in professional photography , specializing in fashion and advertising photography. His work has been exhibited in Italy and abroad, in cities including Florence , Milan, London New York, and Saint Petersburg. He has most recently exhibited as a member of the "collettivo Synapsee" (www.collettivosynapsee.it) which has created and produced a series of exhibitions on show throughout Italy.
