Andrea Ferrari (born 1970) lives in Milan, where he studied philosophy.
His photographic practice is conceived as an investigation on language across abstract and figurative topics.
Over the past few years, Andrea Ferrari has primarily concentrated on three bodies of work, each of which has continued to develop over time: Wild Window (2007-2014) – The pictures included in this envelope (2012-13) – Hidden Paper (2010-present).
The pictures included in this envelope is Andrea Ferrari’s first major publication. Previously shortlisted in 2013 for the European Publisher Award and later for the Kassel Dummy Award, the book is now being published by Kerher Verlag.
Ferrari’s new book, Wild Window, will be published by Steidl Verlag during 2017.
Hidden Paper will be on show for the exhibition Les Nouveaux Encyclopédistes during Fotografia Europea (may 2017)
Ferrari’s works are held in numerous public and private collections.
”Andrea Ferrari surely believes, (…) that reality needs to be read like hieroglyphics and that photographic language can also help in deciphering these symbols. Photography to him is a conscious, reflective practice of a system of signs and (…) is linked to semiology, the analysis of signs.” - Quentin Bajac
