(Phisical Map of The Earth)

A piece of paper is not only a piece of paper: it is a space to be inhabited and to be shaped.

Carta fisica della terra (Phisical Map of The Earth) is a collection of photographs of imaginary territories that evokes Earth ground.

The key point of the work is the construction of an a priori symbolism through witch imagine a reality. This is the result of the creasing and flattening of transparent paper sheets with different techniques that each time produce different geometries.

The new landscapes, escaping immediately recognizable shapes, open up to a universe of interpretations.

Giulia Flavia Baczynski


(Verona, 1982)

Giulia Flavia Baczynski graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan. Since 2008 she has been working on architectural photography for architects, cultural associations and universities, carrying out photographic campaigns aimed at scientific publications.

Her primary interest is the representation and interpretation of the space that man creates and in which he lives. Over the years the concept of space, whether urban and natural or imagined and conceptual, is increasingly deepened becoming the core of her research.

Starting in 2014 she began to develop a research aimed at the connection and intersections existing between architectural models and photography: the freedom in representing a spatial concept and its form show that reality itself is a flexible concept.

The model, also understood as a conceptual and ideal model, leads her to work with cartography to understand and analyze how the sign of man designs his vital and mental space.
