Laurence Miller Gallery is pleased to present LUCA CAMPIGOTTO- NOCTURNE. This exhibition focuses on a selection the Italian photographer’s night photographs, printed in his signature large scale color format. Campigotto is a tireless world traveler, the countries he has photographed in number in the dozens. Across his travels the pictures share a common pursuit of grandiosity in scale. The sites where he most often trains his camera upon are feats of nature or engineering that dwarf the individual. By photographing these sites at night an extra shroud of mystery is added as these sweeping architectural views are pictured when they appear virtually empty, the only sign of activity being the occasional stream of taillights shooting through the darkened streets.
