The night is the moment of anagnorisis about the truth of the human condition”
Paolo Parma, 1958, Verona, Italy.
Graduated in Electronic Engineering at the Polytechnic of Milan, he devoted himself to photography from the time of his studies.
Adopts a design approach in which the concept of dogma is banned, in which everything must have a meaning and at the same time its possible refutation. In its research, consisting of minimal images, without an apparent narrative plot, if not references, clues, a sort of common spirit is perceived, where the mystery, the silence and the wait underline the precariousness of the whole.
His images tend to ask new questions instead of offering answers.
The darkness, a symbol of precariousness, is understood as the moment of the aggregation on the truth of the human condition, just as dust is a metaphor for life, whose meaning is never really grasped.
