Italian photographer Stefano Cerio asserts photography’s ability to render what is usually hidden from the eye. Not, as the modernist tradition embodied by the “new vision” would have it, by exploiting the particular characteristics of the camera, nor, like photo journalism, by showing a surprising aspect of daily life, but by searching those parts of the world that only a specific and determinate photographic intentionality can bring to light.

The visionary nature of these photographs stems from the recognition of the appeal of the machine, even the most trivial and banal. The paradox is that this appeal can only appear at the moment in which their functionality is denied and form is detached from function whereby the machine becomes an exhibit rather than a tool.
