Romano Zerbini in conversation with Lorenzo Borghi @ Photobastei: “behind the green point of view”

Many thanks to Romano Zerbini, curator of Photobastei, who gave me the opportunity to explain today what’s behind my exhibition: The green point of view.


What is near-infrared photography ?


Can we define The Green point of view as conceptual art?


How do plants perceive reality via near-infrared sight ?


What creates the peculiar atmosphere in near-infrared pictures ?


Which new concepts can we develop out of The green point of view?

Of this and more we discussed today at Photobastei. Thanks to the public for questions and new ideas! The green point of view is open until the 5th of April!

Unfolding The GREEN point of view: one day to the vernissage!


We packed every framed picture for my exhibition “The green point of view” with tender loving care. Now that we reached the exhibition hall it is time to unpack all of them 12… patience is a virtue.


When professional packaging doesn’t suffice, remember that towels become very useful. As they say: never leave your towel home!


It looks like this was my job since ever, doesn’t it? But … things are not as they seem. This is the only publishable hammering picture of the day.


Almost done …


… and that’s it! The green point is view is ready! Waiting for you at 18:00 of this Thursday 20th of March in Bärengasse 29, Zurich! In case you do not manage it, the exhibition will stay open until the 30th of March.

ARTBorghi exhibition at Photobastei coming soon on 20-30 March 2014

the green point of view photobastei lorenzo borghi 20 30 march 2014 artborghi address

Do plants see us? What do they perceive of the colourful world we know? Lorenzo Borghi, scientist and photographer, filters out every light but near infra-red, thus to capture the point of view of plants. A black and white world where plants easily move looking for their primary source of energy: light.
