One of the most fascinating mysteries of silence is that it never makes the same noise. For example in the Icelandic fjord of Djupavik, it seems mute to the ears of those who don’t listen carefully, but it is loquacious for those who can imagine its song. The melancholy beauty of this far corner of the world, isolated and enchanted, is highlighted in all its most intimate essence by the use of black and white. The thick fog caresses the fjord, cloaking it in a light and eternal dimension that protects it from the noise of time. In the middle of this infinite silent space a wooden construction is rising, a monumental enclosure where one can rest before getting lost in sad oblivion.
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.
