biography Domingo Milella

He was born in Bari, 1981. He has studied photography at the School of Visual Arts, New York (2005, BFA). His project has been developing over the course of the last 9 years, focusing on a documentation, an esthetical catalogue of “ the human landscape as it is”. Photography becomes the medium through which to present a landscape to the viewer, a medium to question the landscape itself. Observation as the main action to reformulate and encourage all what’s given in modern dialectics. Observation as the desire to reformulate the most banal of our categories: “the I”, “the other” and the world outside. He lives and works between Bari and New York.
