Daniele Sambo EXPOSITO

With his background originally in Architecture, Daniele’s interest shifted to photography and it’s role as a vehicle for change through documentation. Homh, the project he developed at Stills, looked at the change in use of former places of worship into venues of recreational activity. Using a typological approach to his work, he illustrated the gradual modification in the nature, character and activities happening in our urban centers.
The images seek to present the buildings’ residual spirituality as well as acting as a contemporary record of the transformation of places of worship and social congregation. Previous work includes Sismycity, a one-year photographic project on the aftermath of the earthquake which struck L’Aquila and its surrounding area.

Daniele Sambo participated in EXPOSITO  in June 2010, a Stills collaboration with Arteteca to give three Italian photographers the opportunity to spend a period of time in Edinburgh for the research and development of their practice. As Stills first international residency, it enabled visits to national and regional collections, archives, local galleries as well as providing access to production facilities and integration into the Stills’ community.

Exposito is a project originally conceived by Arteteca,  its primary purpose to promote the artistic production of the Campanian region of Southern Italy through a system of collaboration with international partners. It is an on-line archive that collects information and documentation of the artists who live in Naples, and a promotion and discussion platform that organizes talks, exhibitions, workshops, and artist residencies.
