Mid-way through the 2015 Milan Expo, Italian photographer Lino Russo is offering the world a fresh look at the exposition with a series of abstract images that backdrops parts of the colorful pavilions with the sky.

"The subject highlights the decontextualization of places and architectural spaces in order to alter the natural structure," says Russo, referring to these images as his second "Skymetric" series. "These places considered have in common the fact to be all completely square, regular and schematic, so achieving geometric shots in a minimalist context, where the simplicity and cleanliness reign supreme."

"Another point in common is the sky, infact each shot shows with a light blue background that decisively contrasts the brilliant colors of the architectures," Russo adds. "So this places will cease to exist, the vision that result, won’t be more accostable to the original, it will recognize only systematic and organized compositions and structures."
