Personally I appreciate a lot historic buildings. In my country, ancient art is everywhere. Art, culture and tradition are part of my heritage.
Anyway I’m attracted by contemporary art and history too, particulary I’m fascinated by the modern movement in architecture and industrial design because it’s strongly connected to graphic design and typography.

In Europe the Bauhaus founded in Weimar, Germany, was one of the first colleges and an innovative training centre and has influenced design and architecture all around the world. Switzerland is another country which can be considered innovative in developing modern architecture.

I’m interested in architectural photography and I like to get abstract images from my shots. In all my compositions, I usually like to play with lines and chromatic contrast. Below there is a very narrow selection of snapshots I did at the USI campus, Lugano, Switzerland. Enjoy!

All the photos were taken using a digital compact camera Panasonic Lumix FZ2 in a very low light condition and without a tripod, therefore they would result much better exposed and more sharpened if I had used a more appropriate equipment.
