Luca Santese

Luca Santese (1985) studied at Monza’s Art institute and at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan. While attending the academy he worked like assistant in Alex Majoli’s studio and in 2008 he founded the collective Cesura: an independent group of photographers aimed to create photojournalism, documentary and artistic research projects. In 2009 he was selected by Photolucida Critical Mass as a new talent. In 2010 he was selected by the World Press Photo prize with the project Detroit 2009-2010 and in the same year he exhibited for the first time the project Found Photos in Detroit at Le Bal Space in Paris, to which followed exhibitions at the Kulturhuset in Stockholm, at the OGR in Turin and at the MoCP in Chicago and numerous further international exhibitions. In 2012 he published the Found Photos in Detroit book with Arianna Arcara. The book has collected seven nominations as the best photographic book of the year and was selected by Martin Parr and Garry Badger for the series: Photobook: A History Vol III, which collects the 200 best books after the second world war. The curatorial experience of Found Photos in Detroit continued in the Italy & Italy project, a book that collects a selection of images of the city of Rimini in the 90s: the breakdown of the Berlusconi’s Italy in its maximum worldly fulfillment. Today Santese’s work is concentrated in the production of research photography. He continues to deal with experimental documentary photography as in the recent projects Realpolitik and Festa. Luca has recently curated the exhibition for the 125 years of activity of the Touring Club Italiano. He selected 125 original images from the Touring archive. The exhibition was exhibited at the Palazzo della Regione Lombardia. Santese’s work has been published and exhibited in Europe, Russia and the United States.

    Look for freedom and you will be lave of your own desires, look for your discipline and you will fin freedom. 

    This is the essence of sadomaso. BDSM is research.

    He who submits himself to a Sadomasochism experience finds in every session  series of confirmations and answers to questions of identity, many of which cone from the depths of the human psyche.

    What can my body do? 

    What are its limits?

    What is my relationship with my own body?

    Am I more than my body?

    Question like these prevent us from educing BDSM session to a simple satisfaction expression of a pleasure or desire; which he terrible common sense quickly defines as “weird”or in the worse way “abnormal”.

    And it’s not even vague and supponent rivendication of diversity: the Sadomadochism is a reaction to the thirst for knowledge.
