Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities is a contemplation of imaginary worlds—past, present, future—that never existed on any map. Time Traveler is such a contemplation, a visual meditation on the heavens, on space travel, and on extraterrestrial life visiting the past and the future, one that humankind has made repeatedly over the last millennium.Entering this journey through multiple lenses: NASA captions, lost and found footage, government and military documents, architectural stills, security cameras, and UFO snapshots taken on cell phones, Time Traveler was conceived and assembled to reflect a reason to explore, escape, connect, and reimagine life in the presence of the unknown.Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker GIANLUCA GALTRUCCO immerses himself in the spirit of cinema even when working with a still camera.
