In 1972 the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser wrote in his manifesto “Your Window Right – Your Tree Duty”: “It is your duty to give all the help you can to the growing vegetation. Wherever rain and snow, nature must be free to develop; one must again be able to breathe woodland air in the cities. The relationship between men and trees must gain a religious dimension. Then one will understand that it is true if we say: the straight line is godless and immoral.” This theoretical model becomes tangible in plant houses such as Bosco Verticale – Vertical Woods, the name of the two residential towers designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti in the Milanese district of Porta Nuova and named the most beautiful skyscraper in the world in 2014. The interplay of rectangular forms, glass, projections and trees, enhanced by the choice of black and white that emphasizes the juxtaposition of light and shadows, defines the optical flow in which each element loses its real connotations to become one of the many forms in this space.
Samir Khadem, photographer of Syrian origins, has always been passionate about images and technology. Since 2010, after a 10-year experience in the field of communication, he has devoted himself to art photography. Continuing to experiment with new styles and approaches, he has developed an eclectic eye, able to address different types of photography with a focus on modern architecture and street photography. After the first publication in the magazine T. Generation (# 56), in 2013 the magazine Digital Camera chooses one of his shots for the cover and dedicates to him an in-depth interview. The following year he publishes his photographs in Nikon Special - Photo Professional France and in Nikon Special - N photography Italy. Recommended by the Artistic Committee of the Park Association Arese Borromeo in 2013, he launches his career with the exhibition Reflections at the gallery Bazzini15 Milan. The exhibition is followed in 2014 by the participation in the collective exhibition at Assab One of Milan and a permanent exhibition at Art Cafe Pleasure (Milan). As a true ‘urban hunter’, as he likes to call  himself,  he explores new techniques of shooting and post-production, directing his photographic research towards a continuous improvement. In 2014 he won the prestigious First Prize Gold Plate in the Photography Prize "Arte" section by Cairo Editore in Milan.
