The series comprised three images that represent three closed windows. The shots are rigorous, organized according to an accurate geometric precision. The ideas of balance and harmony dominate the shots, and this characteristic is kept in all the photographs, which represent windows of buildings with different styles. In Untitled #1 the windows emerge from the uniform and light-coloured wall, standing out thanks to their reflective glasses; what impresses the mind of the viewers is the linear simplicity of the whole image, in which the windows, as the palace, are unadorned and essential. Instead, Untitled #2 and #3 show glimpses to windows that are part of more adorned palaces, where the buildings themselves captured our eyes. The buildings decorations enrich the images but do not distract the attention from the closed windows which reflective glass, unarguable the central elements of this series.
In Enrico Civeriati’s consistent research it is therefore possible to find stylistic changes, variations, peculiar characteristics that make each shot unique.
Oriented since the very beginning to the concept of fine art, Civeriati nurtured for many years the passion about photography, which within a short time turned into a real profession. The artist became aware of his interest in a shot capable of conveying his own personal vision of the world and the emotion infused by the subject: he claims not to be after some sort of photorealism, for this reason his technique is far from that of photo journalism and documentary photography. His first personal exhibition took place in 2007 in Milan; other exhibitions, such as Viste e Visioni, will follow in 2008 and Wood in Motion in 20013. During the winter of 2014 his photos were exhibited at the Prima Biennale della Creatività, in Verona. In 20015 he participated to Quarta Rassegna di Arte Contemporanea in Treviso. After many years spent experimenting both colour and black and white photos, in later years Civeriati explored how to use both technique at the same time, superimposing colour shots and black and white ones, with the aim to obtain peculiar results. The series where he employed this new style are Scoprire una Città, displayed at the SpazioGMArte of Milan during the Photofestival in 2015, and Shadows.
