Gold 2021 Nature / Panoramic

The Millenial Witnesses

  • Prize
    Gold in Nature / Panoramic
  • Photographer
    Christian Basetti

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 lives in Milan. Passionate about architectural photography, he feels the challenge of making the shots talk about the great works built, as if they were silent narcissistic creatures waiting for someone to express their greatness. Since 2015, he has been passionate about ancient decadent places, giving voice to these structures full of melancholy charm. With a style aimed at aesthetics it is never limited to the documentary aspect, but wants to show the pride of places destined to be erased from time, inspired by Caravaggio's style in the representation of environments.
