Artist Statement:

In his latest body of work, “Short Stories,” Alesi combines several photographs together to form a loose narrative. These vignettes take as inspiration the written short story form; seek to spark the viewer’s imagination to create a narrative. The photos combine diverse genres such as portraiture and landscape; Alesi plays with our natural instinct to connect the dots between distinct elements in order to construct one’s own personal plot. Depending on one’s experience, a particular photographic scene might strike a memory or chord that may become triggered in combination with another scene, thus a story emerges. The images are suggestive but not overly prescriptive, the demand subtle nuances in composition, tone, color, form, and setting. The photos invite internal reflection in the viewer, and play between too little and too much information, as in a short story. These images give a distilled view of life and are not always easily resolved.

The photos in “Short Story #28”, “Short Story #32” and “Short Story #35” were taken with a phone app that mimics the feel of a traditional Polaroid.

Low Tech will be showing at the Center for Fine Art Photography through the month of October.
