Nextones is an international festival of music, audiovisual arts and research. The festival takes place in the suggestive territory of Val D'Ossola, having as its hosting architecture Tones Teatro Natura, a formerly abandoned quarry, now transformed into a permanent space for culture surrounded in nature. Nextones 2021 takes place over one week, the program features lectures, presentations, walks, workshops and site-specific musical performances by some of the most interesting artists and researchers on the contemporary scene.
Photography is the chosen language to represent the singularity of the hosting territory. The photographic artwork of 2021 is commissioned to Leonardo Scotti.
Leonardo Scotti (Milan, 1988) specializes in film photography, blending portraiture, architecture, landscape, conceptual, and fashion photography. With an eye for simple moments with cinematic quality, vibrant saturated colours, high exposure and contrast, Leonardo creates individual, stand alone works that frame an intimate connection between viewer and subject - adding on his distinctive tone of irony and imagination.
