Bari, Metropolitan City of Bari, Italy
Marco Sacco was born in 1984 in Bari, south Italy. He is graduated in Industrial Engineering. He photographs the “human condition” as he find it. He focuses on people and common things valorization. Photography is therefore a way to re-create memory, a non-textual language to convey his personal interpretation of the world.
He is struck by the indifference in today’s fast paced society. He stops and stares at people and places that will inevitably mutate and sometimes disappear without a trace.
He prefers insightful, imaginative, hands on photography related to perception, sensitivity and intuition.
He puts together snapshots and beyond reality photography in an attempt to penetrate deep into physical reality, putting the viewer in a difficult position. He provokes a strong emotional response: a shift of focus from the subject to human existence.
