A fairytale translated into images, where everything is turned "Upside Down".

Is photography an illusion or a revelation?

Maurizio Cecchini with his "upside down" project 

from a new context, with new symbols, to fairy tales of ancient and consolidated memory.

The two fables proposed are "Alice in Wonderland" and "Beauty and the Beast".

In the first, as in the real fairy tale, there is a story full of allusions, a world full of paradoxes, absurdities and nonsense.

In the second, the need to give a second chance is stronger than ever because the first impression is not always the right one, going beyond appearances.

If these two fairy tales were rewritten today, it would be nice to think that Lewis Carroll and J. Marie Leprince de Beaumont could replace a queen of hearts with a contemporary Drag Queen, always queen, still personification of an uncontrollable passion, and a ferocious and mammoth Beast, a tamer hairy animal, or a defenceless Bella, a transexual proud of being different.

Maurizio Cecchini addresses precisely this difficult theme of different, of the fear of the different rendered with great mastery in the splendid photos, a fantastic quality that makes everyone special, a way to accept oneself and open up to the possibility of being different.

A forerunner of modern times where he dreams of his everyday life that is still far away, a controversial, original and sensitive photographer who wants to bring out that grey part that very often is omitted by discretion or custom.

The perception of images is largely entrusted to the expressive sphere of the individuals, based on aesthetics, on a meticulous reconstruction of the scene, on the pleasure of vision, on emotion.

Maurizio Cecchini does not leave us passive spectators of his works but attentive observers, the filter we use, to see through our experiences and our memories of what we have seen so far, is undermined, swept away by the beauty of the different.

The photographic technique is more than ever the place of that bipolarity present between knowledge and deception, where one's fantasies become real and reality is captured to make dreams real.

The self-educated photographer Maurizio Cecchini with life experiences in a freer London offers us photographs with a Caravaggesque setting, where the subjects are illuminated by a violent light that theatrically emphasises the volumes of bodies and costumes making them take life from the darkness of the scene.

Light has a physical function, it shows the visible, and has a mental function; it acts on the emotional condition.

"Sottosopra" (upsidedown) makes us reflect but also dream with levity that only great photographers can achieve.

Sottosopra

Personal Exhibition May 20, 2018 - Rome   ITALY

Unpublished shots of Maurizio Cecchini, popular tales, reality and dream, appearance and fiction, will come alive to the rhythm of the young music band "All Apologies".

Live music that become the voice of beautiful photographs in a magical and secret garden.

A fairytale translated into music and tangible through the images, everything blends, everything is turned "Upside Down".

We are drawn back to childhood but alas remain adults, and allow ourself to be transported between sound and images in a dreamlike reality.​
