When you perform an action, directing your thoughts towards something completely different spoils your energy and the thinking process itself – affirmed philosopher Pentrice Mulford; before pushing a pin into a pillow, the thought is naturally projected towards the surface in which the pin will be dunked in. This surface is thus a force. If this surface was to be mistaken with another force, the pin would sting your hand rather than the pillow. Alessandro Furchino Capria’s photographs are the outcome of two divergent magnetic forces: an attraction towards the appearance of the subjects – them being animate or inanimate – and a dedication to a way of shooting in a relentless manner, but that is at the same time also serene, non-serial, even though the images appear as if secretly connected.
Alessandro Furchino Capria (born in Turin, 27th October 1982) has a background in Industria Design that subsequently led him to approach photography. He lives and works in Milan.
