Again another glance

How many glances can frame a photographic lens, without portraying a single one?
For his series Mino Di Vita seems to cherish this fleeting thought; the uninterrupted search for an answer takes him faithfully through a journey made up of lights and shadows, its bright colors and shades of gray which dress up from time to time his way of understanding the study of human existence. In fact, this turns out to be a vital part in all his works, a sort of tireless element within his perception of the world. The evolution of the way the artist becomes aware of the anthropological element and the human thought in particular, seems to have the same line of thought of the visual reality that, although they are worlds apart, manage to coexist with the only nodal points that are able to keep our attention on a single presence of a human being, turning in a lack, leaves us astonished, and in a condition of mere spectators of the traces of his passage. Starting from a personal analysis of what are the social realities, less and less considered by the modern world and that are often uncomfortable, he comes among the wharves of a surreal world, trial after trial and without eluding the needs that lead him to represent the reality that every day finds a way to frame through the lens of his favorite medium. A world where the human presence is slowly fading away, leaving its place to the pure feeling of self-absence. The “absence” of fundamental elements for our perception has always caused a perceptual shift in the human mind, although we expect that these elements would be within a scene at that exact moment or that would be deliberately left out of our visual field by the mediator of our eyes. We attend a sharp perceptual shift from an anthropological point of view to a sort of abstractionism, and this happens just when the presence of the human being is within the nature that host him in an abstract dimension.  Our existence is now being researched and investigated, just during the moment that our cultural heritage and our imagination are reflected on the images that the artist wants to give us away by reviving his works with human life, aware of the fact that only the observer can trade off the emptiness deliberately created to receive… again another glance into his world.  [italian]
