PierLuigi Macor - Bowie, Texas


PierLuigi Macor took the tranquil, richly atmospheric photographs featured in Bowie, Texas over the course of five extended road trips from 2011 to 2016 across Montana, Texas and Colorado, up the Mississippi River and from New Orleans over to the high-desert town of Marfa, Texas. Macor delicately and perceptively captures cinematic scenes of everyday life in America and the individual fates he encountered on the road. Taken together, these widely diverse and richly atmospheric photographs go to make up a visual novel of lyrical poignancy. Landscapes, roads and houses, even the people he portrays, need no names to tell their story. The photos are fragments of present-day reality in America, unstaged and highly evocative, even elegiac. A representative cross-section of his very expressive non-commercial work, this volume presents a selection of Macor’s personal colour photographs for the first time.
