The drawings collected in this book are a passport and at the same time an invitation to a journey. Small wires between us and the moon, wires that reveal a secret weave which connects events and circumstances, things and people, and its secret is so simple that we are so surprised to discover it in these pages, so innocently and truly displayed.
(Roma, 1960) He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Rome. Attracted by the great French and American humanist photography of the 1950s, he began to collaborate with newspapers and magazines. The meeting with his friend and teacher Tazio Secchiaroli is the ideal opportunity to develop a new vision on photography and, after a short break in the cinema, he begins to travel to make reportages. In 1994 he founded the Postcart publishing house, combining the publishing activity with personal research between photography, music, polaroid and drawing. His works have converged in numerous publications and exhibitions: among the latest in Rome, the solo exhibition I luoghi di Dino Campana, during the Fotoleggendo 2008 festival and Roma in bianco e nero at FNAC and Palazzo delle Esposizioni, as part of Festival della Fotografia 2008.
