Milan by night takes New York.
From the 11th of January to the 24th of February 2018 at the Laurence Miller Gallery in the fashionable district of Chelsea in Manhattan there is the exhibition “Nocturne” by photographer Luca Campigotto.
Luca Campigotto born in 1962 in Venice “is a tireless world traveler, and his pictures share a common pursuit of grandiosity in scale.” (The Laurence Miller Gallery website).
The exhibition allows the visitors to tour some of the world’s busiest cities at night. From Bejing to San Francisco, from Rome to Hong Kong and Milan.
These cities are captured by Luca Campigotto’s camera during that portion of the day that is unequivocally associated with calm and silence. Night becomes then the main charachter of these pictures. Beyond the buildings and the city lights, there is the night.
The entire work of Luca Campigottto is the chance for those visiting the Laurence Miller Gallery to see Milan from a new, unusual perspective.
The Piazza del Duomo without a single person standing in front of the cathedral is an astonishing scene. The empty arches of the Rotonda della Besana and the twin buildings of the XXth Century Museum seem to be unreal. Existing buildings and districts of Milan become fruit of imagination thanks to these photographs.
If you wish to know more about Milan this exhibition is for sure the right way to start exploring our fascinating destination. Milan by night offers a unique way to know what the city can offer to its many visitors.
