Davide Bramante "Last New York"

If  you're into photography (as one of our fans Vanessa suggested us) I'm sure you will also appreciate the new exhibit of the sicilian artist Davide Bramante at the Galleria Poggiali and Forconi in Florence from March 6th until May 8th 2011. The exhibit called "Last New York" is curated by Marco Meneguzzo and includes more than 20 original photographs realized with the double exposure and multiple exposure obtained while shooting, of course, not digital and taken from the same portion of film. The "Last New York" exhibit's pictures are included in the research on cities that Bramante had already taken in Paris, Zurich, Madrid, Los Angeles, L'Avana and Berlin. The name of the exhibit is referred to the artist's last research because after having visited 13 cities Bramante reached New York.  The element that most fascinated him about New York, is its capacity to redesign  and transform itself over and over again! Davide Bramante was born in Siracusa in 1970 and has been working for the collective exhibit "The Present of the Future" at the MOMA in new York and in many other exhibits in Bologna, Siena, Venice and Verona.
