Nature is able to adapt. Recently, for instance, great catastrophes, as petrol spills in the sea, did not produce, in some cases, all the predicted effects thanks to the extraordinary resilience of ecological systems.

Our planet evolution, even if only in the last century heavy marked by the so called “industrial progress”, always showed an exceptional adaptation to changes.

Only in the last decades, human influence became more and more invasive. Too few years to understand complex evolution dynamics that need centuries. For sure it surprises to capture, sometimes, a certain “synergy” between the monstrous products of the Progress and natural species. This project, that starts from the utilitarian relationship between birds flocks and the heat emitted by a Refinery, would like to investigate these “symbiotic” aspects, these precarious equilibria between industries and animals, between men made artifacts and Nature. Not with the common idea of represent how horrible are humans creations, but aiming at highlighting possible and strange harmonies.

About Massimo Cristaldi

Massimo Cristaldi was born in Catania (Italy) in 1970. After receiving a degree in Geology, he began managing international research projects. Art is the environment he grew up in and photography is the way he set his creative side free. The driving concern of his work is focused on traces that man and time carve over nature and things, representing effects and signs on “what remains”, with a particular interest to the “metaphor of the borders” (see more in the artist statement). He was awarded in many international photography competitions such as the International Photography Awards, the B&W Spider Awards, the Photography Masters Cup, the Travel Photographers Of the Year and the Prix de Photographie de Paris. Massimo has exposed in Europe and in the US, in solo and group shows and at photography festivals. He is represented by galleries in Belgium, France, UK and Italy. He lives and works both in Catania and Rome. Massimo’s photographs are part of the permanent collection of the George Eastman House, International museum of photography and Film in Rochester, NY (USA). [Official Website]
