No Fashion Places of America by italian fashion photographer, Yuri Catania on show at Candiani Venice from November 9th, 2018 until Janury 27th, 2019.
“Getting lost in a dream, only to discover that the dream is the reality. Shots that will excite – an instinctive, contemporary, authentic, unmediated photography that speaks to the heart.”
It’s No Fashion Places, the personal research by Yuri Catania that arises from the need to embark on a journey away from the spotlight of fashion, where he has worked as a photographer and video maker for over thirteen years. His pictures belong to the Road. There are abandoned places and cities. Apparently common people and objects can capture the feelings in the hidden folds of the details, a subtle look that captures the great messages in little things.
The exhibition is immersed in a dreamlike dimension where the images stand out, documenting over thirteen years of journey across the United States of America between the East and the West Coast, from North to South. They flow before our eyes, real life moments and experienced feelings, for a spontaneous, intimate and human result – in one word, emotional.
A melancholic romanticism is the background to the narrative of my photographs where I love to tell a reality, the American one, full of contrasts and contradictions.
The United States is a huge amusement park, and with No Fashion Places of America He feels free to fix with his photographic eye the truth of those surreal details of the suburbs, as opposed to the symbols of big cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. A journey through the urban landscape of the American culture of our century.
His journey – that today is yours, too.
