Born in Treviso in 1962, photographer and professor at the IUAV University of Venice from 2006 to 2011, Marco Zanta’s compositional research moves between the representation of urban spaces, architecture and industrial landscape. His intent is not to impress the observer, but to make him participate in a cold and detached vision, in a photographic story that adheres to reality, but is far from the genre of reportage.
His compositions are balanced and ordered by precise lines of force; a refined aesthetic characterized by essential colors capable of recreating calm and never noisy atmospheres. A photographic universe that reflects well the culture and the stylistic Copatlife mood of which Zanta, in fact, interprets by immortalizing architectural spaces, design artifacts and expressive habitats in his shots. "Being that becomes the principle of representation" through the lens of one of the leading photographers and scholars of contemporary formalism.
