Andrea Shkreli (1980)
Photography was an expedient means of observing and recording in the hands of those who shifted geographically. Andrea had a twofold experience of the excitement and embarrassment of emigration: as a child from Albania, his first homeland, to Greece, and as an adult from his second home to Flanders where he lives and continues his photographic work.
Since Andrea settled in Belgium, he continued to take pictures non-stop with his camera, and in part constitute a way of becoming familiar with his natural and social reality.
Shkreli's photographs are creative but also deeply affected from a part of the long tradition of 20th century street and documentary photography that beset the metropolitan glow via the pictorial aspect of an increasingly complex world moving faster and faster.
In such a spirit, Andrea, as an creator try to unfolds his small discoveries, coincidences and notional graps, the points where the social seams stretch or are ripped, at the same time exploring the pace and liveliness that color often provides.
In this way, having the medium of photography as his passport, he continues to discover worlds and new dialogues between form and color, subjectivity and objectivity.
His compositions often thoughtful, powerful but not cute.
