carlo cafferini is an award-wining italian photographer with a keen eye for architecture that in his recent works has shown a special interest in the details and geometries of his surroundings. ‘fantasy motel’ is one of his series where he conceptualizes on the idea of façades expressing concepts, moods or ideas. with the help of photo editing software, he creates hypnotic compositions that with simple twitches say different things.

‘contamination’

 

 

 

the basic pattern for series comes from a floating hotel in amsterdam shot by cafferini himself. the original façade had neutral colors and regular patterns which allowed him to express his concept, playing with repetition and positioning of windows and curtains. the result is a series of captivating building faces that try to convey through their geometries some simple ideas and some other that are a bit more complex.
