SHADOWS ON PARADE
Shadows on Parade is a series of portraits; they are declinations of my imagery, unsatisfied desires, waits, silent attempts of redemption.
Sometimes they are dreams. More often they are prayers.
There is no scenario: the possible reality is a black box, antechamber of desire, abyss. There is no emptiness or total absence of life, but a summary of all the choices and possibilities, from which life's forms and shapes come from. And in that obscurity I weaved memories, exploring remembrances, instincts and desires. Due to the soft light figures appear like a revelation and the rest remains wrapped in the deep darkness, in the mistery.
I shot with the marvel of who can wait, the wait of a moment, the photographic one, the illuminated one of Caravaggio, the fatal one of Bacon.
There are no spectators, only witnesses.
Nicol Vizioli began as a painter and gradually her fascination of still images developed in the form of a strong passion for photography. Nicol’s work has a rare and natural intimacy; she uses photography as a means to disclose the multitude of physical feelings arising The insight of her work draws upon different places, such as the natural and animal world, mythology and finally painting: photography is therefore regarded as the convergence point, where all of them meet. After a degree in cinema she moved to London, where she graduated from MA Fashion Photography at LCF with first class honours in 2011.
Her work has been exhibited in several places, such as SCOPE BASEL2012, Somerset House for the London World Photography Festival, the Zabludowicz Collection, the XV Biennale de la Mediterranée; she has been shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Award 2011.
She lives and works in London.
