To me photographing is telling a story through the subjects of reality, creating impressions and fascination that generate questions from the people who view my images. If a simple picture can generate questions in a person, and inspire them to know more about what they are looking at, this is simply great! The purpose of the project “Atmospheres” is to represent empty urban scenes in a nocturnal mood – a mood of contrast, rarefied lives, bright lights and gloomy shadows, quietness and tension.
Everything takes on a mystical charm which is so colourful but also dark, and all seems magical and suspended as if time was frozen. This series of urban landscapes reveals, (through the beauty of the night’s atmospheres) the wonderful charm of the unknown.

Luca Orsi Photographer Bio
At the age of 18 I was given by my father who is a photographer, my very first camera. Ever since then I started studying the technique of photography technique by following him on advertising sets and educating my eye to the continuos observation of what surrounded me as a possible object of photographic interest. During college using the reflex camera was my main way of self-expression.
To me photographing is telling (a story) through the subjects of reality, creating impressions and making local custom and the people who live them fascinating. I try to intrigue the spectator into knowing more of what I’m looking at. My aim is to capture the essence of the situation through the ongoing observation, is to go beyond the aesthetic beauty of a shot and bring to life the genuineness of the world in which it lies. An education in Humanities and a passion for cinema, culminated in a degree thesis in the direction of photography in movies which gave me that continuing need to search the poetic atmosphere and the extraordinary within the ordinary.
