LUCA CAMPIGOTTO: NOCTURNE [ Laurence Miller Gallery, New York, January 11 – February 24, 2018]
Campigotto, born in Venice in 1962 and currently residing in Milan, is a tireless world traveler, and his pictures share a common pursuit of grandiosity in scale. Included in Nocturne are views of Milan, Shanghai, the Roman Forum, London, Hong Kong, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Wiliamsburg Bridge, Beijing and Jerusalem's Western Wall.
Campigotto's unique style is to train his camera upon feats of nature and engineering that dwarf the individual. Photographing at night imbues an extra shroud of mystery - the sweeping architectural views appear virtually empty, the only sign of activity being the occasional stream of taillights shooting through the darkened streets or vessels on the water. The glow of multi-colored lights permeating the sky yields a spectacular palette not visible to the naked eye
Campigotto is drawn to what he refers to as "mythic cities," cities that are just as real in legend and memory as they are on a map. His pictures border on the hyper-real, as the cityscapes are often a glowing galaxy of light flares and intricate detail. Taken together, these pictures are not just photographs, but a rather robust vision of a place in the mind's eye; the "nocturne" in question is not so much a time of night, but an enveloping mystique.
