MARCO CELLA is an italian talented photographer.
Reykjavik Boulevard met the artist in Milan for his last show, “THE ROAD”.
He told us:
All of us drive along the road. The road we choose is ours alone, and we are alone with her. The physical world seen in black and white emphasizes this duality, it leaves room for emotions, doubts, day and night.
Time is running out to a point where what we have always known as real stops to flow in a color vision that marks the end of the physical world and the beginning of the metaphysical world.
The black tracks weak figures in a white wrap-around where all colors and all individuals converge.
The individual loses his identity, doubles, triples, multiplies and divides endlessly into a new reality. The footsteps of these pictures shows the transition between these two opposing worlds: the finite and the infinite.
On the road we walk, we look, we wait. We are alone.
Time led us to the end of the world (as we know it)
and there we will find a place where one becomes two,
where three becomes more, were it all comes together,
where I am mine.
After a degree in International Politics, he began his career in photography as assistant for several years of many fashion photographers including Michel Comte, Peter Lindbergh, Mikael Jansson, Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier.
Through the “internship” alongside these great teachers grows, he absorbs, learns, develops, refines his talent and eventually began his personal path as a fashion photographer and portraitist for various newspapers, magazines and publishing houses.
He exposes his personal projects in Milan, Paris and St. Barth.
His fashion shoots tell his style. Clean. Natural. Elegant. They show the rigor and perfection of his technique.
Marco Cella interprets his subject through the light, which he knows wisely take advantage. He shapes a face, a look, a figure, leaving us to imagine the feelings with which we wish to tune into. In contact.
And showing with his photograph “things that no one can see before they are photographed.” (Diane Arbus).
