Johnny Alexandre Abbate is a photographer researching the metaphorical limits of the human body and feelings of loneliness and desolation. He blends on-site explorations, historical studies, and dramatization of natural environments into complex interdisciplinary projects that can be defined as a “the space travel of a lost kid trapped in the screams of his hormones.”
He lives and works in Germany and has exhibited there as well as in Italy and the Netherlands. Abbate defines himself an “alien Indiana Jones.”
His pictures are taken all over Europe, often in extreme places: cities destroyed by wars and earthquakes, abandoned power plants, mines, glaciers. His work is dangerous, and he has often ended up in the local hospitals, but he reminds us, “Every scar is a medal."
