Luca Gaetano Pira
Luca is an Italian photographer currently based in Madrid. His work explores the relationship between the human figure and the natural environment. Staged nudes within unruly landscapes speak to the innate, ancestral connection that humans have with the land. In his series "Khaos," Luca is inspired by concepts of biocentrism and the role of human beings within a larger ecosystem. Artfully posed figures bend and twist to imitate their surroundings, symbolizing a physically and visually symbiotic relationship between man and nature.
