Luca Capuano Focuses His Camera on Sayerlack
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Bologna, Italy - Feb 01, 2016 - Sherwin-Williams Italy has chosen the distinguished lens of Luca Capuano for the pictures of the new “Sayerlack World” photographic campaign, with the aim of focusing on the spaces, the people and their rhythms, the environment and the “backstage” where the Sayerlack products and solutions are devised and realized on a daily basis. Distilling the prestige of innovation, the energy of creativity and the authority of precision in a collection of photographs, Luca Capuano has theorized, by unravelling it, a traceable leitmotiv also in the silky glare emitted by an empty paint can. An expert eye that has wandered before settling in an environment that has intensely influenced his emotions.
Luca Capuano, class of 1974 and influential photographer of industrial architecture, has participated in very important architectural projects in collaboration with prestigious publishing houses, museums and trade magazines in addition to realizing important reportage for UNESCO and the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism. He teaches at the ISIA (Higher Institute for Artistic Industries) of Urbino and the IED (European Institute of Design) of Rome.
Industrial photography examines the world of work by immortalizing the diverse working processes and production areas, with the aim of making the emotional component emerge.
For those who work on this photographic genre, unattractive images do not exist but rather subjects are understood through different interpretational rules. By favoring the details, the ultimate goal of this style of photography is that of never allowing the image to lose its natural credibility.
During the interview conducted backstage at the photographic shoot, Capuano described his work and his passion for industrial photography.
The first question that he was asked focused on the changes in industrial photography over the last few years. He replied by first describing what is meant by “industrial photography”.
This term refers to a type of commission, related to the working environment, with well-defined visual rules that can also be utilized in an artistic field.
“Well, first it is necessary to understand what is industrial photography. It’s photography by commission which is linked to the working environment. The system of visual rules that is utilized can be used in many other worlds including that of art.”
Capuano continued by saying that the panorama has not changed over the years because the world from which it takes inspiration has remained unchanged.
In the second question we tried to understand how the creative work proceeds once the subject has been chosen. In order to arrive at the final photograph, the subject is defined thanks to the image rules that are taken advantage of, such as the focus, framing and the contrast that are all necessary to allow the image to obtain its desired meaning.
Luca Capuano has been collaborating with the company since 2003. In this project he has been influenced by the relationship between the location full of creative signals and processes, and the importance it has for who lives there on a daily basis.
