Reviews - What do customers think about Francesco Nonino: Atmospheres (Collana)?

contemporary Italian artist's sharp photographs of skies and clouds  Sep 7, 2005
Valtorta titles her introductory essay aptly "The Skies of the Land." In Nonino's photographs--38 of them shown full-page on right-hand pages with titles on facing left-hand pages--the land has an inextricable connection to the sky; but not one of possession. Rather, the title means more something like the "lord of the land." For without the enveloping, expansive skies of the sharply-focused photographs, the persons, activities, buildings, and other parts of the scenes would not be. Despite the sharpness of the variously simple or multi-part foregrounds, the viewer's eye is drawn to the sky of each photograph. The sky dwarfs even mountain ranges in the background. The titles of the photographs are scientific names for the clouds in the skies; Cirrus fibratus, Cumulus mediocris, etc. The scientific preciseness of the photograph's titles and their clarity suggests no interpretation of them, no particular way of seeing them. It is by one's eye searching through them--attracted by the details which stand out, the cloud formations, and the endlessness of the sky--that one comes to an awareness of the "atmospheres" enveloping and pervading human life on earth. This is the first collection of Nonino's photography; which has been shown in solo and group exhibitions mostly in Italy and is a part of collections in Italy and France.
