About this print:
LS VIII #97 is part of LS IV to VIII, Spain, Morocco, Croatia, Iceland, 2014-16.
The dawn of mankind, a time with no rationality. An ancestor contemplating the cosmos perceives the necessity of a divinity. The Second Cosmogony takes place along with the miracle of self-thinking consciousness. In that moment he knows he exists for a reason; he's got the significative element and this had found a way to reveal itself to him. Conscious and Unconscious got together in the creation of the Self.
About the artist:
Luca Tombolini was born in 1979 in Milan, Italy. He completed humanistic studies and after that a degree in Sciences of Communication, with a major on rhetoric patterns in Cinema. While studying at University he met with large format photography and started experimenting.
He is self-taught using the medium. He started photographing desert landscapes during long solo adventures following an unconscious desire that he later theorised as a need of a glimpse of a transcendent absolute. Of which nowadays society is more and more becoming oblivious.
He's a reader of C.G.Jung and Buddhist teachings. He explains, “Being alone in those remote areas, it’s a very humbling experience. It helps my mind to create a meditative suspension over the reality I perceive; cultural occurrences fade away leaving an apparent void which I try to fill in with shapes and colours of my photographic play”.
