The title of this series, executed by Gaetano Musto in 2011, is Notte: Night. Night is when we shed our daily routine and our past to enter into a brand-new reality. Night is demonstrating the sensuality of a woman’s naked body, without any naughtiness or prejudice. Night is when we are finally free to be ourselves. Photograph after photograph, the artist focuses his attention on nightlife and the world of women, grasping various aspects and nuances. He is ever attentive, but his presence goes unnoticed in these shots. Bodies, objects, details: everything is captured with great precision, leaving nothing to chance. Like a painter, Musto deftly toys with light, shadow and colour, rendering different chromatic sensations. Muted atmospheres and blurred outlines are just a few of the elements that give the photographs a feeling of lightness and timelessness, almost as if to underscore the desire to step away from the surrounding reality and unleash one’s imagination. And so, in front of our eyes, this makes way for a new dimension that lives according to its own rules while the rest of the world sleeps.
