A neo-classic time-machine?

ZÜRCHER/IN of lorenzo borghi - Photobastei 2.0, Zurich, Switzerland

ZÜRCHER/IN of lorenzo borghi – Photobastei 2.0, Zurich, Switzerland

An elusive presence. Many of the bronze and granite statues in the streets and parks of Zurich have populated the city for almost a century. The artworks of local and foreign artists rightfully acquired the honorary citizenship. Whether women in skimpy clothes or young nude boys, everyday human being is elevated to symbolic heights.  A photographic exhibition that invites not only to look at but also to look inward.

Find more at the official Photobastei website (auf Deutsch), on the website of Centro Italiano di Cultura in Zurigo (in italiano) or download the flyer in English.

Contact me through artborghi@gmail.com for more information or for setting up a guided visit to the exhibition. Pass by and discover an elusive side of Zürich you might have missed!

NASA, shooting stars and I

Tonight, at least in Italy, is Saint Lawrence’s night (notte di San Lorenzo).That means, eyes up to the starry sky looking for shooting stars. Although the Perseids’ peak is announced to be in the nights of 11th and 12th of August. As beautifully described in this video made in NASA, with one credited picture from Lorenzo Borghi (that’s me). Nomen omen?

Enjoy it and follow its suggestion to find your Perseids in the next few nights. Here you can see the original picture I shot to the night sky of August above the Gotthard pass (Switzerland). Thanks to Jane Houston (NASA) for choosing it.
