Barriers, Manlio Matteo Albi Marini

Being driven by the commercial world we live in and the accessibility to smartphones, one may not think of the Iphone as artistic tool. Matteo, however, has turned it into one. With this device Matteo is able to capture moments at a second's notice, grabbing the perfect photo each time. 

In his most recent series, "Barriers", Matteo explores everyday objects and structures in pursuit of a larger idea. This idea of being trapped within society's clutches, the physical boundaries that we are given and abide by everyday. These everyday objects also represent the psycological barriers that we feel, those personal flaws that the world tells us to hide and be ashamed of. Matteo brings these ideas to the forefront of our minds with this series.
