Dec 2013 – Jan 2014
Italian born photographer Guy Vinciguerra has travelled. Hailing from a background as an industrial chemist, Vinciguerra initially photographed that which was occurring close to home, a period of dramatic change within inner-city Perth. He has since spent a decade photographing the ancient Silk Road, a continuing project which has taken him to China, Pakistan and Uzbekistan. Vinciguerra now presents to us Metropolis, a series of monochrome images exploring Tokyo and its inhabitants. “Vinciguerra draws attention to the restraints that are imposed upon us, those we impose on ourselves and the universal absurdity of life.” Metropolis will be exhibited at Colour Factory Gallery in Fitzroy, Melbourne, opening December 5th from 6-8pm and running until January 25th, 2014.
All images are pigment ink on cotton rag
