Luca Spano – One

Luca Spano started using photography with a traditional documentary approach and then his photographic practice shifted towards a more personal interpretation of his surroundings. He looks for images that go beyond simple documentation and focuses on the feelings he get from places.


One is a personal-landscape project about my native land Sardinia. It is a long-term project started in 2007 that walks along a personal and a narrative path which wants to interpret the sardinian contemporary landscape, from the coastal boundaries to the hinterland. The aim of the project is to describe the intimate relationship between one person and his motherland. I wish to create a personal geography of images using a minimal visual approach in order to focus the narration on the feelings I get from this land.
Sardinia carries in its landscapes and in its way of being an island my own way of facing the outside world and relating to others in my everyday life. On a more subtle level the work also deals with issues peculiar to this island such as fires, pollution, unfinished construction works, slow economy.
