Reminiscing Lost Moments in Time

by Daniel Vorderstrasse, 10/06/2011

As a child travelling to his father’s house amid Sicily’s island regions, Italian-Venezuelan photographer Jose Antonio Nigro was exposed to the supreme passion and commitment his mother submersed into her photography.  Seeking to create an intimate relationship with everything surrounding our daily motions in their own specific and unique moment of time, he dedicated himself to documentary photography. 

Striving to unify the plethora of emotions surrounding our reality and way of life is Jose Antonio’s mission.  Focusing on integrating the colors, shapes, forms and textures to create a harmonious relationship in the photograph stimulates him to travel the globe hunting for exquisite scenes and picturesque moments immortalized at a distinct moment in time.  Transferring himself into the object and reproducing its delicate story fuels his enthusiasm and encourages his endeavors to continuously expand by way of advancing his techniques, improving his formats, and fine-tuning his qualities as an artist.

Encouraged by French impressionism and their spontaneity in capturing an image at a particular moment in time, his works capture a natural and un-obstructed portrait by grasping the images thoughts, feelings, and emotions contained at an exact period of time, which fades to our memories seconds later and is lost for others to experience. 

After accumulating thousands of pictures via journeys across the globe, he first presented his works to the public in August 2010.  After a successful debut, he featured his works in collaborative exhibitions with other artists and photography contests across the USA, Mexico, Venezuela, Singapore, and Korea. 

His second solo exhibition, “From Where I Am Standing,” will display images gathered from his travels across the world.  Showcased will be photographs ranging from his earlier works to more recent visions, illustrating his evolution as a photographer, and an artist.  The exhibition will be available to the public beginning Saturday, June 25th and will conclude Sunday, July 3rd at Gallery Golmok in Itaewon.
