The shapes of shadows

Giovanni Ruggeri lives and works in Catania, a city that has always been a source of inspiration for its art, where he now has a space that is studio, darkroom and art gallery at once.
The “Shapes of Shadows” photographic series is the first part in his journey of research on the shadows cast on or by the façades of Sicilian palaces – in which he captures, for example, the contrast between the stark shadows of Salina’s regular buildings and the varied, asymmetrical baroque roundness of the ones in Scicli.
