FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
Photos as music sheet
I deal with photography since 90’s. It started as an hobby, then I was encouraged to pursue the fine art. For me, the frame is like a music sheet, as an object with modules, rhythmic elements, tones, consonances and dissonances; it’s like the temporality dynamic of music translated in the spatial two-dimensionality.
Vision and creativity
I believe that, in my photos, a connection with music and Renaissance and Baroque art is pretty clear. That is due to daily contact with museums, churches and and historical buildings in Rome - I attend these places as artistic director for art and music projects. Here are fed my vision and creativity.
Subjects and photographic style
Over the years, my photography has experienced a stylistic evolution, conducted in a non-systematic and linear way, due to the musical commitments that absorbed my time in certain periods.
Every picture springs from my free creative activity; the only genre that I practice on commission is musical instruments photograpy, objects from which I am obviously particularly attracted.
Technique and gear
I started with analog cameras, through a variety of cameras.
Nowadays I use two full-frame cameras: Sony A7RII and Canon 5DmkII. Lens are essential: 14mm, 55mm and 90mm fixed focals by Sony-Zeiss; zoom 24-105 Canon.
These cameras generates big dimension files; but sometimes I used to bring on my portfolio pictures taken by compact-cameras, like the Panasonic Lumix or my smartphone itself. A tripod and filters complete the equipment I use.
Post-production is done with the couple Adobe Lightroom - Photoshop.
For fine art I use the latest generation Giclée professional system Canon LUCIA. With 12 different pigment ink tanks, coupled with the EIZO photographic monitor and the prestigious heavy-weight papers Hahnemuhele and Canson, the printings are more adherent to my artistic idea.
