franco fontana

Friday, January 31, 2014

Photographer Franco Fontana was born in Modena, Italy in 1933 - his first solo show, exhibiting his technicolor landscapes, was held there some years later in 1968. I am so in love and impressed with Fontana's technicolor images - the fantastic array of primary colors found in Italy's natural landscapes - rolling hills against bright blue skies, fields of flowers, a lonesome tree - and his studies of American urban landscapes - the harshly geometric color blocking created by buildings and walls and oh yes, pink rooftops, too. They're so modern! So now! (They remind me so of the color palettes present in Amanda Jasnowski aka @hokaytokay's photographs). See more of Franco Fontana's work here. Happy Friday!
