“I am an italian photographer, born in Rome 1966. I started with reportage photography (B&W, film-developing and printing) during a trip to Vietnam on 1990. From 1991 to 1995 I exhibited my pictures in some solo and collective exhibitions in Italy. In 1996 I started a close collaboration with a Fine Art Photo Studio in Rome where I improved all the techniques about developing and printing with many types of cameras and films: 35mm, 4,5×6/6×6 and 13×18 optical bank. By this Photo Studio I worked in all areas of commercial photography: wedding, advertising, portrait, editorial and art catalogues. From 2000 to 2007 I was the manager of this Photo Studio about digital shootings and image editing. Since 2007 I live in Freiburg (Germany), where I began my experimentations with nude and sensual photography.
I’m still working as a photographer in both areas of commercial and artistic photography (not only nude, but also landscapes, portrait, abstract and nature).
I do not claim to have found any particular recipe, secret or inspiration for the creation of my art-images.
I simply follow my instinct, my emotions, and the emotions of my models.
What I try to do is condense and enhance these moments in a picture, with the hope to transmit them to the viewer and capture his attention for more than a brief moment.”
Nota de redacción.- Como nunca hay dos cosas buenas juntas a la vez, el autor trata de proteger sus obras ofreciendo imágenes de baja resolución. Una pena porque la composición y los tonos cálidos resultan exquisitos. C’est la vie!
Nueva entrega de este fotógrafo con un nexo en común, una mesa.
Desgarrada la nube; el arco iris
brillando ya en el cielo,
y en un fanal de lluvia
y sol el campo envuelto.
Desperté. ¿Quién enturbia
los mágicos cristales de mi sueño?
Mi corazón latía
atónito y disperso.
…¡El limonar florido,
el cipresal del huerto,
el prado verde, el sol, el agua, el iris…!,
¡el agua en tus cabellos!
Y todo en la memoria se perdía
como una pompa de jabón al viento.

“I’m a hobbyist photographer returning to making images after a 20 year hiatus whilst I ran my own publishing company. Although I had some previous experience in wedding photography this was all in the pre-digital era.
My enthusiasm to set myself new photographic challenges which take me out of my normal comfort zone has been invigorating and I’m also enjoying getting to grips with post processing tools such as Lightroom.
The images on this site reflect some of my current interests and whilst they may not be the most original I hope that they are at least technically competent and mildly interesting.”
Nota del editor: Of course!!!
– Creo que… nos aburriremos el uno del otro
– Pero está bien.
– Estar aburrido está bien.
– También nos enfadaremos el uno con el otro.
– Nos haremos recordar por qué vale la pena todo esto.
– Te decepcionaré.
– Y yo te decepcionaré a ti.
– ¿Lo prometes?
– ¿Me lo prometes?
– Te lo prometo.

“La capacidad de capturar el momento en una imagen me fascina una y otra vez y cuando tengo el tiempo y el deseo, lo hago muy intensamente. Mi tema principal es la mujer.“

Aunque nunca fui un apasionado de “Sports Illustrated” ni del “Swimsuit”, he de reconocer que estas fotografías de la modelo Julia Zu realizadas por JOAKIM KARLSSON, siempre me llamaron poderosamente la atención. El moño alto, los tonos suaves… pasteles… delicadas. La focal alta que difumina el fondo para no distraer nuestra atención… por lo que era obligado hacerle un hueco en el cuaderno.
Norway photoartist. Love to work with people, and show the beauty of nude art.
“I work with the best nude models in the UK with the aim to capture emotional or storytelling images that evoke questions or feelings that are deeply rooted. I also happen to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world with natural landscapes. All images are printed on archival paper using archival ink for longevity,”
