The Longest Sunset

  • Prize
    Silver in Portfolio/Fine Art
  • Photographer
    Alessandro Mallamaci

During a flight to Keflavík airport, it is possible to see the sunset for many hours. Staying in Reykjavík during December is like living in a month-long sunset. The ancient struggle of the survival of man against nature forms the background for images that don’t try to give answers. These photographs represent natural elements that are deeply connected to the unknown. There is a surreal aspect to the composition that obscures the interpretation of the image.

Professional photographer, Fujifilm ambassador from 2013 to 2015, teacher at Leica Akademie until 2021, he collaborated with EIZO Color Academy. He regularly holds intensive courses and workshops on photography, post-production and fine art printing. Member of Tau Visual, Associazione Nazionale Fotografi Professionisti, he is represented by Valeria Bella Gallery in Milan. He curated the exhibition “Malta 2018” at Leica Galerie Milano, project realised in collaboration with Malta Tourism Authority. He was scientific consultant for the TV show “Master of Photography“ in 2017 and 2018.
