Publisher's Description

Selected as Book of the Week by Christian Michael Filardo

Yard Press is pleased to announce the release of Shapeshifter, the first monograph by Italian photographer Marco Pietracupa. The book is a journey through archival material, mostly unpublished, which traces the artist’s shots, presenting them to public through unexpected combinations and a new key of interpretation, with the collaboration of Virginia Devoto. There are three themes that run like a common thread work, the forest understood as a human habitat and forest composed of faces and bodies, human constellations and animals laid bare without delay, skin that shows in its many facets. Alongside these engages the third issue of technical material portraits, cool counterpoint, almost disturbing. A circle of images that begins and ends with the organic representation of nature, even when it is an artificial nature. The book is designed by Studio Dallas and accompanied by texts by Sara Dolfi Agostini, Francesco Tenaglia and Virginia Devoto. The volume is produced by Marsèll.

Marco Pietracupa was born in Brixen in 1967.
