DAPRILE Carmine Mauro

Italie

2011 - Carte blanche e Laura Sérani

« Le travail de Daprile se réfère à la photographie de plateau, un genre devenu très populaire au milieu des années 80 (bien qu’on puisse remonter aux mises en scène surréalistes et dadaïstes de l’avant-garde), et qui se nourrit de la fiction et pas de réalités existantes. Avec pourtant un élément distinctif. Les cosplayers qu’il photographie sont des personnages qui ont été habillés, maquillés et mis en place non pas par l’auteur mais par les modèles eux-mêmes. Ils se présentent devant lui déjà prêts. En retour, l’environnement, qui lui, est réel, apparaît comme ayant
aussi été inventé. » (Roberta Valtorta, Extrait du livre « Mattetunin » éditions Libri Aparte)

à propos de l'artiste

Carmine Mauro Daprile (Bergamo, 1974) lives and works in Milan and Paris.
In 2004 he specialized in Theory and Language of Contemporary Photography at the Centro Bauer in Milan. After devoting a number of years to theatre and doing coursework at the Department of the Arts at the University of Milan, in 1998 he turned to the visual investigation of views and identity, chiefly using pinholes. In 2004 he began to probe the theme of identity, initially photographing the objects, spaces and gestures of people who live alone, and he recently developed this topic by studying the alternative world of cosplayers. He gained recognition when he was cited as an “outstanding author” in the volume published for the 2008 Photography
Prize awarded by the Associazione Italiana Fotografi Professionisti – TauVisual. From 2004 to 2009 he taught in Miro Zagnoli’s photography course at the University Institute of Architecture in Venice.

His works have been published in Interni, Sportweek, Domus, Abitare, Habitus, GQ and Zero.
