A red tulip, set off-centre with respect to the framing, shines in the light of a sunbeam in an immense green expanse under a cloudy grey sky. The chromatic contrast strikes the eye, evoking the specific contraposition between light and dark, and the more general juxtaposition of positivity and negativity. This tension – chromatic in some cases, spiritual in others – marks the narrative time of the picture with an endless polar attraction.
An exceptional example of a natural landscape, the Val d’Orcia stretching between the provinces of Siena and Grosseto was celebrated by the painters of the Sienese school during the Renaissance. This photograph captures the Tuscan scenario in a direct and original way, conveying the sensations and history of this place.
After an educational path in which curiosity and observation were fundamental, Andrea De Amici turned to photography, driven by a passion to illustrate the cultures and people of the world through images. He specialized in portraiture and travel reports, the genres that characterize his research, after attending courses organized by Nikon. His reportage goes from Iceland to Myanmar, Morocco, Thailand, Peru and Africa. De Amici is a freelance photographer based in Milan and he parallels his photographic career with courses in digital photography and travel workshops aimed at teaching strategies, principles and techniques.
