Matteo Fieni (*1976) uses photography with an iconoclastic approach. His pictures describe basic and essential contents and try to break with traditional formal structures. Fieni considers his hometown and work base Lugano as a place between two cultures, where the tension catholicism - protestantism is present. In his engaged and lively research he creates pictures that combine the intensity of his 'southern' caracter with 'nordic' concepts of imagemaking. The investigation of this clash between concepts leads him to a genuine form of photography, displaying landscape, urbanity and human portraits.
