    Gold in Nature / Panoramic

In this series I wanted to enclose some panoramic shots taken in the great American parks of the west, in the United States, where the boundless rocky deserts are the masters of many areas. These silent millenary witnesses of the Earth ages, during the golden hour, light up by magic thanks to the vividness of the colors of their rocks. Multi-exposure panoramic shots.

Christian Basetti from Milan. Since 2015, he has been passionate about ancient decadent places, giving voice to these structures full of melancholy charm as if they were silent narcissistic creatures waiting for someone to express their greatness. Creator of Forgotten Art-chitectures project, decayed places are not shot just with an usual limited documentary aspect, as many others do, but they are like fine art canvas aimed at aesthetics. Inspired by Caravaggio's style in the representation of environments, with a similitude prostitutes and beggars=decadent places turned in something nobler.
