ANTONIO PRIVITERA

Chelsea International Photography Competition
January 27 – March 8, 2018
Reception: Thursday, February 1, 2018 6-8 PM

Freelance photographer Antonio Privitera’s oeuvre spans documentary, conceptual, and street photography, his works always retaining a strong sense of duality. Based in Rome, the artist often utilizes diptychs to explore ideas such as magic versus reality, past and future, memory and time, or life and death.

Privitera’s pictures seek a dreamlike moment, an ironic instant, or a bright epiphany. In this project, he photographs bodies, skin, sun, sand, and shapes, developing an enigmatic narrative about the connections between people and the sea, nostalgia and melancholy. Ultimately, Privitera visualizes the desire for escape.
