Manifesto

For me, photography is a language that allows us to write and question with light our relationship to the world: to time and matter.

The activation of the camera imposes an instant of vacuum, of suspension of the perception during the shooting. The snapshot does not provide a restitution of the vision, it operates the suspension. I think it’s by expanding this “time of thought” that we have the opportunity to broaden our thinking.
For me, photographing is not a strictly documentary act. An upstream meeting with the architect/artist, an experience of the places and an intimate process of introspection are necessary in order to enter into resonance.
I install and restore a dialogue: between matter and man, light and space, air and its vibration.



Bio

Higo is represented by the architect and artist Agathe Rosa.
Lives and work in Marseille (Fr).

After a bachelor at the Sapienza in Rome, I gratuate from the National School of Architecture of Marseille with honors in 2011 supporting my thesis: "Time given to the critical thinking".
Then I decide to abandon the work in studio to construct with the light. The photographic act is the basis of my research and creative process.
