North West London’s C99 Art Project is set to unveil Aaron Baghetti’s stunning photography exhibition, Tilt Up, opening on 26 June
Tilt Up is an exhibition that is inspired by a collective feeling of global alienation. The work aims to stimulate individuals to acquire details outside of their visual range, to raise their gaze towards futuristic perspectives, real and concrete that arise from human intelligence, by the need to evolve and to always overcome its limits.
Everywhere in the world, in the modern metropolis, walking in the street, we see how people are absorbed in their own microcosm, distant from each other and from what surrounds them, each taken from their own daily lives, living still in a distracted present.
Aaron Baghetti was born in Milan and is an emerging talent and whose work is one to watch. His father, Giancarlo, was a journalist and photographer and a well-known Ferrari Formula 1 driver – the only rookie to have won a Grand Prix F1 at his first race. It was this early influence that ignited Aaron’s passion to become a professional photographer at the early age of 16.
Since then, Aaron has pursued a successful career working within the commercial sector, capturing everything from cars to music, fashion and design. As a photographer, he is fond of any project that transcends enthusiasm and dedication to the point of deciding not to get limited to a specific boundary point, but to be free to follow his inspiration of the moment.
Some events of his life, such as the premature death of his father, have deeply marked him, but at the same time have also encouraged the growth of his own charisma, the development of a deep inner world and a keen sense of observation.
This has led to Aaron’s artistic inspiration, to build on his cultural and emotional experience and heritage (futurism, transavantgarde and science fiction), generating his desire to emerge, to look up ahead, to travel around the world and capture the powerful images employed in this exhibition.
Tilt Up – ‘Alza Lo Sguardo’ – runs from 26 June-31 July at C99 Art Project, 99 Chamberlayne Road NW10 3ND
