Nowadays, Italian born Fabiano Busdraghi is a rare example of love of art and the cause. After several years of a successful career in physics and oceanography, he decided to swap science for photography. In his websites he registers everything he captures during his day-to-day life: the people, the sceneries, architecture, fashion, still-lives etc. Despite being overall interesting, his best pieces are precisely those linked with his core training - Science.
He recently made public a set of photographs taken during one of his trips to Antarctica, when he crossed the Drake Passage Passagem de Drake and another one that took him to the Southern shores of the Weddell Sea. Mar de Weddell. The images are spooky. The rough yet beautiful setting of Antarctica is captured in all its nuances by Busdraghi's lens, revealing abstract forms and metaphysical visions, a scientific testimony of Earth's most remote and uninhabited place, and simultaneously the author's aesthetic manifesto.
