However not everything we see strikes our interest or has got noteworthy meanings or credible truthfulness Therefore it is necessary to choose what to concentrate our attention and our eyes on.
The photographic and anthropic research carried on by Francesco Corbetta starts from these bases and finds an important analogy with Gillo Dorfles’s thought. Dorfles, a scholar and an art critic, very well expressed the concept of “horror pleni” and the relationship our society has with images, communcation and messages.
#guardomanonvedo is a provocation more than a reflection. Francesco Corbetta says: “I build a white wall in my photographs, so that we can see nothing and this makes us open our eyes”. The blank makes room to our imagination and can be filled in with our emotions and our thoughts.
The photograph’s intent is to create a visual space, which makes us see and not merely look.
