Edward Alfano
Lumphini Park - Infrared Photograph on Double Sided Aluminum

2015

About

This is a double sided work, that hangs from the sides of the frame. Alfano has mounted the negative and positive image of "Lumphini Park" onto an aluminum sheet. Edward Alfano is a contemporary photographer working in Southern California. Alfano photographs all across the world, his most photographed regions are China, Italy, and Huntington Gardens in San Marino. In his photographs of Huntington Gardens, one can see the influence his early university education in biology and plant anatomy had on him as a budding artist. He focused on plant anatomy and ultrastructure as a graduate student, where he learned how to use infrared film, which remained his choice of medium for the remainder of his career. Alfano’s work eludes categorization, while his subject matter is either landscape, architecture, or monuments, Alfano’s use of technology, unique perspectives and innovative compositions removes him from the traditional style of photography of such objects, and firmly positions his style among the pioneers of surrealism. The photographer utilizes both archaic and modern technology in his practice. Alfano begins by shooting in infrared film, he then develops the film in a traditional darkroom, and scans it to produce a digital print of the image. This process further abstracts his subject matter with a soft focus finish, adding to the surreal quality of his work. Alfano uses the infrared film to manipulate light and shadow, further exploring how this push and pull of light can draw an alternative narrative to a common scene. The partnership of technology and traditional medium, gives Alfano's photographs a distinctive aesthetic, and sets his work apart from other photographers.
