Luca Monti

"When I photograph bodies or faces, or fashion, the intensity of light push me like wind, a strong force that forces me to be more abstract. Sometimes I have to make the effort to transpose it, in order to get closer to what it was that first impressed me; sometimes I have to calm me down to not loosing the tenue bond with reality and to don't let my images to be pure abstraction. For me, black and white is closer to introspection, to memories, to the sound of my mind. I don’t see the same in colour – it always was another language, a living language, the language of reality”
