‘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.
Selected images have received distinctions in photography competitions like International Photography Awards 2016, Fine Art Photography Awards 2017, Spider Black & White Awards 2016, PX3 Paris Photography Prize 2016 & 2017.
Images are part of a larger project: ‘Integral Lens - multi perspectival approaches to the study and representation of the built environment’. A visual journey of contemporary architecture and cityscapes from United States taken during a 5-month visit, awarded by the Fulbright Foundation Greece with the Artist Scholarship Award and sponsored by the College of Architecture and Design of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
