Guido Mocafico

Guido Mocafico is represented exclusively by Hamiltons Gallery. Mocafico is a contemporary master of still life photography. His relationships with brands such as Chanel, Clinique, Dior and YSL and publications including Vogue and Harpers Bazaar allowed him to develop a signature intense style which translates to his personal artistic projects such as Serpens, Aranea, Blaschka, and Nature Morte.

Guido Mocafico's Movement concentrates on the concept of time; whilst time was originally measured by astronomical and seasonal movements, here Mocafico explores the precise movement of a mechanical system to measure time.

 

Mocafico has photographed pieces, which are in themselves a work of art, by Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Chopard, Gerald Genta, Greubel Forsey, IWC, Jacquet Droz and Patek Philippe. The motives for the choice of movements depicted within the series were made purely for aesthetic and personal reasons; these criteria led Mocafico to choose only round movements.

 

"In a horological movement, I find poetry meeting technology. The poetry of time elapsing, the change of seasons, astronomical movements, and technology which enables up to eight hundred mechanical pieces inside such a small volume, all working perfectly together, to reach the most accurate time calculation. Each one of these movements takes on a life of its own.", Guido Mocafico.
