Hunting tales and legend |Photographing the invisible

Hunting tales and legends ist the unique work of Stefano Favaretto who tries to photograph the real figures of the explored legends.

After mirroring the pictures, incredible figures or faces are coming out revealing an invisible part of the world. The artist is able to capture the multidimensional part of human being bypassing the 3d vision. Part of the artistic process is to print the pictures on typical materials like marble or slate or wood. The sence of the artistic project is to create an interactive process between the works and the viewer who is giving the own interpretation of the work.

Going into deep

When I travel to a place, I try to capture the energy and the story of it, talking to people, listening to their memories about the past and the present, searching after local myths, legends and tales.

Photographing the invisible

 The second part of the creative process is to photograph places or objects, related to the myths and the stories. My effort is to approach them in an expressionistic way, avoiding being dazzeled by the aesthetic exterior, looking through the camera’s lens for their intimate essence. That’s why I prefer to depict simple objects or plain landscapes instead of complex subjects.

Extracting the essence

The third part of the creative process is to show the hidden side of the captured image visualizing the invisible through the mirroring of the picture. This process allows the artist to materialize the final work already created and visualized in his mind during the act of capturing the image.

Materializing

The last part of the creative process is to print the image on the selected material connected to the legends and to the territory.

The used material like marble, slate, wood or others complets the artistic process symbolizing the authentic territory where the image was taken, making the work unique and special.
