Second Cities is an artistic project by Giuseppe De Francesco.
It is a photographic exploration of the largest cities that are not capitals in several countries across the world.
The photographs, taken from privileged points of view, document the urban reality and portray its profound complexity.
In Second Cities, photography is a tool for investigation and exploration of the urban landscape, in a cognitive path of progressive unveiling of form and identity. These photographs are a mean of visual representation of the characters of the city: density, stratification, superimposition, juxtaposition of masses, volumes, flows.
The shot is a moment of appropriation and restitution of a place, its formal code and its relationship with the rest of the city.
