‘Magherini takes multiple frames of the same location, and layers them to create unique images that distort the subjects within the picture, and create a sense of movement. Much like Hockney and Picasso, the pieces seek to capture the dynamic nature of the world and how it is never static. Even though the image depicts a building made of stone, a frantic energy is ever present.’

‘Susan Sontag said that “a photograph is a slice of space and time.” Magherini with his works brokes through this definition through his nearly ten years of exploration.’
Xun Chi – Photo World Magazine

‘Magherini ve el mundo como una «suma de instantes» que, combinados, revelan el ayer y el hoy al mismo tiempo. Capa por capa, el artista fiorentino da vida a la teoría del Universo de Bloque —en la que pasado, presente y futuro suceden al mismo tiempo— de una forma onírica, emotiva y sumamente dinámica.’
Ligia Bang

‘Riccardo Magherini’s reality is fascinating in its intentional lack of clarity. He layers perspective and moments in time, as if seeing through an insect’s compound eyes, or those of an alien with extra-dimensional perception. It’s what we’d normally see, only…deeper. Like if those fabled, unused parts of our brain were suddenly switched on. A new way of seeing.’
Eric Perret

‘Il a immortalisé la vie quotidienne des habitants et des ouvriers de manière artistique et originale, entre flou et atmosphère complexe.’
Hoel Cadic

‘Merging moments and places, Riccardo allows us to make our own vision, a very personal point of view.
Details and nuances come to the surface joining the plot, enriching it, generating unexpected connections.’
Maxim Panés

‘Riccardo Magherini’s unique take on street photography stands apart from the popular high contrast black and white or vivid color looks that seem to be in style right now.’

‘Magherini sees the world as “a sum of instants,” moments and impressions that overlap each other and merge into feelings and memories.’

‘E’ la vita che incede nello scorrere delle linee, dei colori e delle forme fra i confini dell’immagine.’

‘Using overlapping image layers, Riccardo Magherini documents the people’s life in an artistic way.’

‘Dopo un battito di ciglia, quando cominci a distinguere le forme, ti sembra che la realtà non potrebbe essere registrata in modo più fedele di così.’
Silvia Cannas Simontacchi

‘La serie ‘Firenze’ è un processo di stratificazione di memorie. Immagini raccolte nel tempo: ore, giorni, a volte stagioni, formando delle sequenze, dei fili. E i fili sono stati intrecciati come in un arazzo, con le immagini come trama e i ricordi come ordito. Un arazzo tessuto con una prospettiva rinascimentale e dipinto con un pennello del XIX secolo.’
