“HUGS” on Erodoto 108. But how beautiful this article is?
The storyteller Carlotta Alaura writes about my project dedicated to trees “HUGS. The Tree Calling” as if he had known me forever. A huge thank you to you and to the editorial staff of this compelling cultural magazine for having dedicated a space to this curious “man whispering in the trees”
I leave you with the words of the Director of Herodotus 108, Andrea Semplici, a wonderful man that years ago I was lucky enough to meet on the Pollino during one of my many trips in search of a “hug“:
“Luca, for years, has been approaching, unseeded, large trees. He photographs them, rotates around them and photographs them again and then confuses the images: Luca knows how to portray the soul of the trees”
Happy to have my name included in this wonderful and well-kept catalog of contemporary art, curated by the historian and critic Dr. Antonio Castellana. To him a huge THANK YOU for the invitation and valuable criticism of my work.
“HUGS” on the magazine Madrugada!
Happy and honored that Madrugada, magazine of the Macondo association, a non-profit organization for the meeting and communication between peoples, has chosen my photos from the project “HUGS. The call of the trees”, which I initially called “HUGS” to support the articles of the number 120, soon to be released.
Below is the PDF that the editorial staff kindly provided me with, and the photos they selected.
My trees on Fotoit, monthly magazine of FIAF (Italian Federation of Photographic Associations). How exciting!
FOTOIT, the official organ of FIAF , the largest association in the sector in Italy.
I have been part of this great family since 2009, with pleasure and pride. In the May 2020 issue I was surprised to find this wonderful article dedicated to my project on trees “HUGS. The Tree Calling” (project that I initially called “HUGS”, as later reported in the article).
The article reports my work as an example of a project in preparation for the national photographic project AMBIENTE CLIMA FUTURO (national project 2020-2022).
The subtitle is: Let’s start from nature, “HUGS” by Luca Zampini
Several newspapers have written about me and my project “HUGS. The Tree Calling “. But I don’t feel like a character, definitely a person who loves trees and nature and who is worried about our planet (especially thinking about those who are much younger than me).
Photography is a medium with which I try to express my moods, thoughts, feelings…
A dutiful thanks to the editorial staff of “Il Resto del Carlino” of Ferrara and to the journalist Giuseppe Malaspina, who wrote the beautiful articles below and for the one at the bottom of the page related to my solo show at the Gallery Annunziata in Ferrara.
