Sometimes, amongst all the emptiness and minimalism in the world, it’s nice to be given so much in an image that you start to wonder whether what you’re seeing even exists. This is certainly the case for Enrico Natali’s work, the photographer whose passion for image-making was re-awakened when his 15-year-old son introduced him to the digital camera.
Currently showing his work at Joseph Bellows Gallery, California, Natali has a knack for capturing the American landscape in all it’s big, flat busy-ness. Garish billboards, ordinary people and brightly-coloured trucks contrast with dull concrete in such a way that it looks like a copy and paste job – except it’s really not, he’s just really good.
