Tele-Visioni is a project which deals with the television world and looks at some of the behavioural archetypes portrayed in its programs. I have spent over 15 years researching this media format and looking at the social responsibilities it has towards our society. I have spent over 15 years fighting this endless battle in which television keeps on rising up above me like a Phoenix, stronger and more alive than ever.
The project is now in a new phase which involves digital manipulation techniques. The images on the screens are in fact photographs that I took previously in TV studios and later positioned onto the screens of the homes I had photographed in order to better interact and create the contrast I was looking for. New phases of this project are planned in USA, Brazil and Japan.
Felice Beato (1832 – 29 January 1909), was an Italian–British photographer. He was one of the first photographers to take pictures in East Asia and one of the first war photographers. He is noted for his genre works, portraits, and views and panoramas of the architecture and landscapes of Asia and the Mediterranean region.
