Lino Russo's "Skymetric" photo series features over-saturated and architectural imagery. The graphic designer and photographer is based in Naples and has an affinity for abstract, structural details that resemble elementary geometries.

These colored forms are captured against a vivid sky backdrop that stands out as a blue element of negative space. This element sparks a particular interest for the artist who juxtaposes the vast nature of the sky with the calculated and artificial construction of the built environments he photographs.

"The places chosen by Lino Russo have the common characteristics of appearing square and schematic, thus producing geometric and minimalist shots." The result is a set of portraits resembling abstract art works. Though seemingly random, the photographs are revealed as architectural closeups upon closer inspection.
