Tiziano Rossano Mainieri, AiR 13 (Artist is Residence)

Tiziano Mainieri uses photography as a means of play. He works closely with his subjects to uncover and expose, creating a new reality.

“Capturing an impression of something that may have been real but the photograph itself is a new thing, a new reality.”

During his residency Mainieri will focus his research on the city of Edinburgh to capture how its residents interact with the cities outside spaces.
