Since the mid-1980s, Roberto Pellegrinuzzi has questioned the specific characteristics of photography, as well as its history and discursive potential. With scientific rigour, he adopts processes of observation, collection and classification that allow him to conceive—among other things and to varying degrees of scale—constructed herbariums, still-lives in the form of macro-landscapes, and giant fragmented portraits.
The artist’s gaze upon the world materializes itself through reproductions of reality presented as fiction.

Fragments (de la série « Le Chasseur d’images », 1991 - 1994), 1992, 82 gelatin silver prints, 82 wooden frames and needles, 1/3.
