Michele Abriola

“…we were told since childhood that there is a “positive charge” and a “negative charge” in nature.
All very cold, scientifically proven, not at all dogmatic. Yet our professors, often, forget to talk about the “human charge”, it would seem a simple concept to explain and yet it is not at all.
We are sure, however, to find it in faces, places, memories and no doubt this human side is also present in the photographs of Michele Abriola: glimpses of life, scraps of space-time, moments that feels of infinity, outlets of vitality, pulsations of feeling…
Veristic and truthful photographs with an unmistakable feature…”
