‘Boomeritis’ series presents stand-alone portraits of buildings with the long exposure shooting technique using a 10-stop neutral density filter as well as regular exposures treated in a similar artistic manner. We depart from straight photography to fuse the boundaries between representational and expressionistic image making. Details of skyscrapers and public buildings, frontal views of iconic architecture and urban scenes, presented in a way that highlights the formalistic aspects of design, while the blurring of time is intended to give them a timeless feel. Desaturated or monochrome treatments emphasise the tectonic elements of subjects, and the manual blending of different exposures in post-processing adds presence, depth and complementary lighting. The title is a reference to the pathology of the Baby Boomer generation characterised - as American philosopher Ken Wilber points out - by pluralism infected with narcissism. An integral photographic vision aims to combine a respectful representation of exterior realities with a meaningful expression of our interiority by pointing towards the material sublime.
We must preserve the dignity of modernity even while we attempt to overcome the disaster of modernity”
– Ken Wilber
