The Author’s surprising stereo technique brings the sparkle of life to a series of views taken around the globe,
from Europe to Asia and back, from Venice to Seoul, from Stockholm to Singapore. Images draw the viewer into
the scene, plunging him/her into a street football match in a Venetian campiello or into a pool with a mesmerizing
view on a Singapore skyscraper.
Alberto Fanelli invites us to a journey beyond anthropocentric perception, made possible through the use of
hyper and hypo stereo high definition photography. Inspired by groundbreaking nineteenth-century explorations,
the author’s work aims at giving the viewer an altered experience of reality, unattainable by human senses
alone. The viewing experience of street life, people and objects gets twisted into something weirdly unfamiliar:
we struggle to bring back to a sense a scenery which our brain perceives as undergone to an unfathomable
Amazement and awe increase with the time spent trying to unlock the secret of our vertigo: we finally come to
understand that reality is not altered, as usually done, by distorting it, but precisely by the opposite mechanism,
i.e. by sharpening the neatness of our viewing powers.
