Alessandro Puccinelli likes water quite a bit. It’s inspired him to create this stunning array of seascapes that capture every facet of the sea, from violent storms to becalmed surfaces.
The calmer images remind me a little of Roman Loranc or Hiroshi Sugimoto, while the color work bares the hallmark of another sea obsessive, JMW Turner.
Another artist I think of when looking at his images is Ansel Adams, for the way he returns to the same subjects again and again and allows the subject to speak to him rather than impose his vision on it.
On his website, Puccinelli says the following ‘The sea brings me clarity of thought, its waves, as described by Jack London, are the knights of the infinite sea army, ‘ bearing simplicity, elegance, power and freedom’
