There is a door that leads into the very soul of the people Alessandro Pellican portrays. It is a path that goes from sought-after and unusual expressions – in this case, the fleeting instant of the man running his finger under his glasses to close his eye – and that, through the slant, pose and rendering, leads to universals sensations and sentiments.
This series of portraits from 2010 reveals Alessandro Pellican’s tones and stylistic approach. First of all, black and white gives psychological depth to the portrayed subjects; the poses, never commonplace or ordinary, are always on the verge of seeing without being seen; the curious, ambiguous titles identify yet also allude to personal relationships and past experiences.
Alessandro Pellican, who has a degree in Medieval History, explored his passion for photography and turned it into a profession. Skilled at using different types of cameras, over the years the artist has developed great digital technique that enhances black-and-white portraiture, clearly derived from the Leica School. He has been featured a number of times in his hometown of Trieste. In 2010 Pellican’s photographs were shown at the Galleria LipanjePuntin–Artecontemporanea (Trieste) at Passion is the difference. Part III, alongside the works of Masbedo, Mappletorphe, Gao Xingjian and Emilio Vedova. The following year, the gallery then devoted a solo show to the photographer. In 2013 he participated in the collective exhibition Il piacere di scambiarsi punti di vista, staged in Cittanova d’Istria to celebrate Croatia’s entry into the European Union. In 2015 the Kleine Berlin (Trieste) devoted an important anthological exhibition to him, entitled Magma Story and curated by Marianna Accerboni.
Alessandro Pellican lives and works in Trieste.
