To Have and Have Not
Economic, political and social power is concentrated in the hands of relatively few people, who operate in a world quite distant from everyday reality. The public rituals that accompany their decision making take place locations that should be symbolic of the power of the people. Luca Zanier recorded the halls, in all their magnificence, at moments when they were devoid of human activity.
For years Luca Zanier (Switzerland, b. 1966) worked as an assistant to renowned Swiss and international photographers before beginning his own studio in 1993. His artistic work revolves primarily around urban spaces, in which Zanier opts for unusual perspectives to permit us to see the familiar through new eyes. Among the prizes he has received for his work are the Silver Award of the Prix de la Photographie.
