(Jean Michel Missri)
Over the past 20 years, I has worked on a number of very different themes. I began a “cities” project ten years ago in Venice. I had chosen black and white as an ideal medium for expressing my sensitivity in this area. My main sources of inspiration are Norman Parkinson and Karl Hugo Schmölz, to name but two.
These pictures involve a highly sophisticated technique and more than twelve months of preparation. I was intent on revealing all the subtleties, all the richness of the destinations I had chosen for this project. The shots were taken in the early morning or late at night, to meet specific lighting requirements. I had intentionally focused on man-made constructions, devoid of human presence, in order to allow them to “live”, to exist, in their own right.
If you ever come across a tall, blue-eyed man, photographing the town in the early hours of the morning, who knows ? It may just be me…
“I wonder if the sensation of light precedes in my photos... I am searching for the sensations that are in harmony with myself. The absence of time the common denominator of all my photos.”
