THE STREET LAMP
IN CONVERSATION WITH FABIO CATANZARO
Photography by Fabio Catanzaro
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Helping to keep the streets safe, the street lamps' presence usually goes unnoticed by many. Those tall metal constructions illuminate at night and watch over the landscape during the day. In his project THE STREET LAMP, Fabio Catanzaro focuses on the street lamp, predominant in the viewpoint, where its aesthetics outweighs its utility. And in the concept of the landscape, they are part of it, they are fully embedded in any urban context.
Fabio is a photographer born and raised in Venice, Italy. His artistic research is developed within the context of minimalism and urban details, borrowing his motifs from everyday life, transforming them into compositional frames of beauty and inspiration. We had the pleasure to interview Fabio where we talk to him about his photography journey so far.
