Bruno Fontana was born in 1977 and lives in Paris. His photographic work is based between the representation of territory and components related to its appropriation and modification. It reveals with some aestheticism the structures that have become our landscape and raises questions of heritage and memory, mass culture and social behaviour.
In Urban Wallpapers he brings motifs to saturation point by making observations about architectural elements that speak to us of today: of living conditions that can be stifling, of conventions that swamp us in their single, endless form of surface and appearance behind which people, families and our contemporaries live.
The eye circulates within this dense space, uncovering numerous elements such as hanging clothes, a sun shade set up on a balcony, an open window…the details are registered as tiny ‘anomalies’ in the wallpaper of urbanism – crushing graphic logic.
