About the Book
Catalogo della mostra personale "Assolo" di Karim Carella
Karim Carella is a self-thought italian landscape photographer. Fascinated about great contemporary photographers such as Michael Kenna and Josef Hoflehner, he elaborated their lessons and inspired by the Nature he captures natural elements and landscapes with a new eye. The search for a personal style resulted in a formal coherence built on two points of reference: black & white and square format. Other recurrent elements are minimalist compositions, long exposures and strong contrasts. The exploration process of Karim Carella moves along precise patterns: place exploration, genre exploration, and the exploration of the photographic art and its relationship to the author. The common denominator of Karim Carella's photography is undoubtedly the personal and solitary search for ways to express a transient moment or contest without making use of any logic or deterministic recording of the occasion or of the place.
