In the work of Giovanni Vecchi the form emerges from the darkness. An eye for chiaroscuro and the enhancement of detail lifts the figure into the foreground. All the splendor of the bodies — the beauty and the muscular strength — are animated by his camera. Vecchi aims for an emotional monumentality, a baroque vision of the world. His vast darkness is not altogether a pleasant place, there is anguish and ecstasy, but an erotic vulnerability. See more of his work on his website, Facebook, and Instagram.
