ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Inhabitants by Andrea Buzzichelli
Out Sep 7, 2017 / Urbanautica Books

This publication stem​s​ from a photographic survey conducted by Andrea Buzzichelli​ ​during 2015​ ​in the National Park of Casentinesi Forests, Italy. Starting from the collection of archival materials made by the National Forest Service and the Canilupus association for wildlife monitoring, the Tuscan photographer ​creates his vision expresses of the forest and ​the ​animal life that lives there. These images, not at all descriptive, catapult the gaze into a forbidden, mysterious​,​ and obscure imaginary​ world​. The boundary between the acquired and built image is ​erased. The casual bestiary produced by photo traps blends with ​the artist’s ​introspective views of nature and vegetation. The project as a whole expresses a sense of intrusive power in an otherwise unviable world, ​as well as a voyeuristic​ approach to nature. Upon careful viewing, the book Inhabitants reveals the humanness of its very nature; of an anthropocentric posture eradicated and sometimes extraneous to the environment. With no particular reference to time, the author carries us into a dimension that has to do more with feeling than seeing. It’s in this “blind” perspective that Buzzichelli realizes his​ homage to the pioneering work of George Shiras III.
