Simone Rosti produces images that manage to convey both movement and a perspective frozen in time. Rosti photographs bridges, tunnels, highways, and sparse town roads, always from a centered perspective so that the path stretches before and away. In his hands, theseĀ are places of transition. Though one might think of a road or a tunnel as points of connection, Rosti frames them so as to strip them of any context. There is no visible place his bridges extend from, and no place they arrive at. They simply vanish into darkness. (Agora Gallery, New York)

“I’m intrigued by exasperation of contrast and scarification of the image until nothing but essence is left.” (Simone Rosti)
