Claudio Rasano

Claudio Rasano (b.1970) is from Basel, Switzerland. His work explores the relationship between spaces and humans, the spaces often contrasting the people who inhabit it.  His work avoids any artistic falsification of the way his subjects really are. His tool, the camera, is always discrete, never obtrusive, truly honest noting that he only takes photographs when the people agree.

EVERYONE LIVED IN THE SAME PLACE LIKE BEFORE BLACK WHITE COLOURED

My series shows the fragility side of life in South Africa using portraits and landscapes. My portraits are frontal taken at eye level, looking directly and ahead, the face cast in shadow showing a strong and determined expression.The portraits are evident that the person is the subject of interest reflecting the face of the person using no background to provide context or embellishment. Besides the portraits, landscapes also form part of my series: houses and cottages shown as a shell and then expanded to reflect the vast expanses of the Cape Town.
