Artist Statement

Panomania is an exploration into the world of chaos. The images depict altered states of reality that are either whimsical, celebratory, or unsettling. Buildings, billboards and bridges sway to and fro, fractured into tumbled pieces as if the ground beneath them is buckling. Crowds of people are thrown into a collage of faces and bodies, juxtaposed in random or repeated patterns.

I borrow from historical art movements, such as cubism, surrealism and abstract expressionism. The images are generated and digitally manipulated on an iPhone in Pano mode.

Louis Calvano is a self-taught, emerging digital photographic artist residing in Queens, New York. He is the recipient of The Award for Excellence in the 2021 Conception Arts Showcase hosted by Rachel Wilkins for his Panomania Series.
