Variations on a theme of absence
unpublished dummy, 2018
26 x 39 cm, 50 pages
Created during the ISSP 2018 International Summer School of Photography: Photobook as Object with Yumi Goto & Jan Rosseel, this book is the result of how a one week workshop can evolve a initial architecture project into a more profound topic: depicting a fake, surreal, artificial Swiss society, the book combines uninhabited architectures with axonometric maps and fake objects. Bound with bolts, it gives a sense of heaviness and discomfort while reading, in relation with the content.take a look inside

Hello! My name is Gregory Collavini and I'm a photographer from Bern, Switzerland.
From German and Italian descents, I was born in Bern. Graduated from the University of Art and Design of Lausanne (ECAL), my fields of competence are set in art direction, multimedia visual communication, layout design, print and book making. My photography works are focused on human environments, using architecture, landscape and urban planning as my main inspiration sources. My most known work, Silent Outlooks, has been published by Favre Editions and is regularly exhibited in Switzerland and abroad. Fighting normality, I like to match opposites in my pictures. My insatiable curiosity trends me constantly towards rewarding and challenging experiences.
