The work of Patrick Tosani, constructed over time as a lucid reflection on the photographic medium, concentrates on three topics that are inseparable from one another: space, object, body. For nearly forty years he has been investigating the features that constitute photography itself, its potential, its limitations and its relation with the visible reality.
Permanently at the centre of this research (applied to common objects that inhabit our everyday lives, to the human body, to the simplest clothes that we wear and to architecture) lies the question of scale that photography uses to transform the objects of the world into images: and his photographs make them appear as evident, magnified, extraordinarily enhanced in a new perceptive dimension. With extreme precision Tosani studies the process of transferring the tridimensional reality to the bidimensional surface of a photograph and underlines the autonomy of the photographic image that becomes a new object in and of itself.
