Tephrite, or tephra, is the pyroclastic material of heterogeneous composition and size produced during a volcanic eruption, from ashes to large boulders.

Sigurdur Thorarinsson

This work is a personal photographic study of the vast volcanic area that surrounds the city of Naples and its province. It is an imaginary journey into a parallel world, composed of stone, forests and ancient remains. In this undefined land, suspended in time, careful observation of the details of the landscape can reveal fairy-tale and demonic characters, through a pareidolic illusory effect.

A mountain that for many of us is home as well as a volcano. A complex land, full of charm, where ancient rites and traditions are handed down, and where good and evil, light and dark, and black and white coexist in their infinite gradations and form a single work, as in a photograph.

This is a tribute to the places of my childhood and adolescence, and to nature, its strength and its mysteries.

When a wolf bade me farewell

The young wolf may stray from its pack in search of new territories to settle, looking for a mate to establish a new pack.



The term "esoteric" is derived from the Ancient Greek "esóteros", meaning "inner", a clear reference to spirituality, to that which is hidden, to that which is not immediately apparent. Over time this word has been taken to refer to all those spiritual doctrines that are, in part at least, secret or confidential.

Luigi Mosca (Cercola, 1981) è un fotografo italiano.
Il suo lavoro di ricerca esplora differenti aspetti che riguardano l’antropolgia, da quello morfologico e più strettamente correlato agli aspetti scientifici, a quello psicologico, focalizzato sulla complessa relazione tra uomo e natura, attraverso un processo di interpretazione che coivolge l’ambiente, il paesaggio, ed il territorio, cercando di restituirne chiavi di lettura che differiscono da quelle usuali.
I suoi lavori sono stati esposti in diverse mostre collettive e personali, tenute da vari festival e gallerie di rilievo internazionale, tra cui la Royal Geographical Society di Londra, ed il Capture Photography Festival di Vancouver.
Nel 2019, con il suo lavoro “Tefra”, ha vinto il premio come miglior portfolio al Diecixdieci Festival di Gonzaga, che ne ha prodotto una mostra ed un menabò.
Vive e lavora a Milano.
