After being integrated in PhotoEspaña's official section with an exhibition at the Goya room of Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, Loaded Shine marks Paulo Nozolino's return to Porto with a solo exhibition.
The work gathers 20 photographs limited by the time between 2008 and 2013 and by a geography that covers different places such as New York, Paris, Berlin and Lisbon, but also the rurality of countryside places in Portugal and in France.
With a syntax loaded with symbols and still using 35mm film, the artist's photographs unveil his aware and conscientious look at a world in decadence and left to desolation, whilst never abandoning the pursuit of the truth and purity in the analogical process. "I cannot stop looking at what we're losing, honor and dignity. Word is not strong enough to say it. Only image can do it. The variants that Modernity has to offer don't interest me. I seek for the purity of everything that resists to progress' violence", says Nozolino.
