Mattia Mognetti’s photography series entitled ‘Black Tie is Required’ captures the best that Italian architecture has to offer. The Milan-based artists gray-scale focus does so with a haunting appeal, one that benefits from the intensity that comes with white on black imagery.
Geometry is a staple of Mognetti’s work. The strict angles and rivets of the buildings are in plain view, leading viewers to appreciate the design of the structures above historical, social or topographical considerations.
The dark backgrounds displayed in the Black Tie is Required lend a remarkable sense of detachment to the towering masterpieces. The edifices appear to be floating in the night despite their solid foundations, and this effect is one that remains essential to Mognetti’s moving portfolio.
