During the pandemic lockdown, unable to produce outdoor, I manipulated a series of 20 images (mobile, pro cameras and google earth photos) by using the iPhone “Live” function  (loop, bounce, long exposure) and third-part editing apps creating mesmerising effects. The series posted on IG has been highlighted by curator Gianluca Marziani on Dagospia, the most important Italian news website about politics, economy, and society:

“ TOMMASO FAGIOLI creates visions with gif allure and narrative spirit à la Jeff Wall staged photography. An alien and alienating [IG] grid, a sort of suspension of disbelief that strikes the eye while stealing the other side of the truth.”
