Riccardo Ceccato is a 26 years old italian photographer. He graduated in Industrial Design in 2012, following a master’s degree in photography at John Kaverdash school in Milan. His work is a constant research for shapes, lights, situations that recall a specific mood.
“Milano Sottoterra” (Milan Underground) is a series of photographs that tell the story of the “non-place” that is the Milan subway. These photos try to capture the sense of alienation and isolation that one feels in this world that lies beneathe the surface. The result is an area that has lost most of the characteristics that define it as a “place” because it has simply become a connection between two points. A place that opens up a momentary parenthesis of life where time stands still and sensations don’t mutate. The photos are all shot on 35mm film and developed in a darkroom.
