This book compares some of the developments of photography by selecting the work of those who, at an international level, have understood and adhered to a new approach to photography. We are now experiencing an epoch-making transition from the analogue process to the digital one. This technological change has also influenced the visual modalities of art, photography and the media as a whole, causing many photographers to open their eyes and become aware of new dimensions and developments, blending differing currents of thought and working methods.
Born in Chiavari, near Genoa, in 1942, Mario Cresci has, since the end of the 1960s, produced a complex body of work ranging from industrial design to photography and installations. In 1974 some of his photographs were acquired by the MoMA in New York. His work has been displayed in several editions of the Venice Biennale. He is a lecturer at various institutions of higher education.
