MARCO DAPINO:
TRANSPORT
Mostra fotografica
1st March – 22nd April 2012

RB Contemporary presents from March 1 to April 22, 2012 at Foro Buonaparte 46 in Milan, TRANSPORT, the personal exhibition of the photographer Marco Dapino.The exhibition is the result of extensive research on the world of transport, which began in collaboration with the Lombardy Regional Council of the Architects’ Orders in 2010.

The work is developed in three parts: Airport Signs portrays the airport area of ​​Malpensa, Suburban Streets the peripheral road junctions and Light on Rails the Milanese railways. The photograph of the young Milanese author, however, goes beyond the mere urban survey of the anthropized territory.Explore the urban landscape with great accuracy, using color and light to design space and movement, creating a personal story. The images are strongly characterized also by the choice of the shooting time, a variable in the perception of the place not indifferent, capable of transforming anonymous areas into abstract and surreal landscapes.

Airport Signs represents the iconography that characterizes the airport runway area, a microcosm based on its own language of tracks and signs that is perfectly standardized, rigorous but at the same time obscure to the common traveler.It is a graphic landscape that emerges, in which the static regulates movement, with its codes. In Suburban Streets, the survey focuses on the perimeter connecting areas of the Lombard capital told during peak evening hours.

The light evokes but not only, draws lines of living escape, marks a movement that emerges from the stillness of the photo and creates a very strong instantaneous temporality. Finally, Light on Rails offers a portrait of the stations as deserted places, deprived of their human essence, almost suspended in time, whose only visible trace is represented by the light trails left by the moving trains. And it is the light that tells what is not there, what is not seen: the daily and continuous passing of people.
