Shortlisted · Unveil’d Photobook Award 2018
A spin-off is a derivative work which maintains the same scenario of the original work while focussing on parallel events and secondary characters.
Spin-off is a collection of six visual narratives, compounded by a selection of photographs from the past years (2010—2016). Six figures, accidentally encountered and rapidly captured in portraits, become subjects for fictional stories.
Each story is nothing but a fragment, a splinter, a projection of disintegrated pictures. It is subjectively decided through a random process in which physiognomy meets imagination.
Born in 1986, Luca Marianaccio graduated in Architecture in 2013.
Luca is an artist who works mainly with photography. Exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, he wants to amplify the amazement of the viewer creating compositions or settings that generate poetic images, which they leave traces and balances on the thread of recognition and alienation.
His works are based on formal associations, which open a poetic vein with images on several levels, where the fragility and instability of our apparent are being questioned ‘certain reality’. Underlining its aesthetics, it investigates the dynamics of the landscape, including the anthropological manipulation and the limits of our hypotheses on what the landscape means for we.
He has exhibited his work in festivals and galleries, his works have been published in well-known magazines international and acquired from public and private collections. Marianaccio now lives and works in Pescara, Italy.
