"Krisis" is a serie of digital artworks.
De Faveri, psychologist for a living, carefully witnesses the human conditions which mark the present time of our changeable society. It is as if we were suspended between past values and references which are disappearing and the unstoppable invasion of new technologies which bring about fundamental changes. All these contraditions are also experienced within the individual who find himself in a state of confusion and perpetual bewilderment.
De Faveri, who experiences this emotional and psychological distress, has resolved to use creative expression as a form of therapy.
"Krisis" is the symptom of a disposition that affects us all. The word should be interpreted with a broader meaning:
Krisis chise Krino, to distinguish.
What the all-wise etymology tells us is that the crisis is nothing but the right time to make a choice,
the time to make a strong decision: we can only attempt to rid it of its pessimistic connotation, which focuses on pain or an impending gloomy outcome. The crisis represents danger and opportunity, it is the choice that, whether we like it or not, we have to make.
Gaetano De Faveri born in Ponte di Piave (TV) on 1952, became interested in photography in 80's.
He felt to need to move to deeper emotional e phycological expressive themes. He has studied psychology and completed his professional training in the field of psychiatry and psychoterapy.
From 1985 he attended Sabitani's photography school in Tuscany, during this years he analyzed the aspects of photo shooting and darkroom print processing.
The development of and mass spread of digital technology of the last years coincided with his absence from photography.
This new expressive means combined with Gaetano De Faveri's previous preference for the photomontage technique, and computer editing process, launched his new creative season which ended the release his serie "Krisis".
