Pietro Mattioli's photographs reveal concealed traces of a city. At first sight the photographsi show cryptic vertical structures and intricate patterns, deploying their own beauty by being reduced to their complex forms, surfaces and colors. A closer look exposes familiar objects like trees, fences, masts, lattices so as stairs or walls. By documenting his nocturnal excursions, Mattioli created a typology of the everyday, that focused on these well-known details, nobody really spends time to look closer at. Two Thousand Light Years from Home offers this opportunity, although a steady gaze is needed. As the book itself as an object intensifies the alienation by unprocessed pages, that try to divert a quiet look. Two Thousand Light Years from Home presents a selection out of a series of 80 photographs.
