Artist Profile

Nato a Firenze, Andrea ha studiato geografia alla locale università. Continua a vivere tra qui, in questo luogo che considera più un’ispirazione che una città, e Bangkok, sede ideale per i suoi lavori in Asia. Come evoluzione della sua incessante voglia di viaggiare Andrea è divenuto un fotoreporter specializzato nella documentazione umana e ambientale. Oggi lavora continuamente per riviste italiane e internazionali. Ha pubblicato oltre 100 libri fotografici. Andrea è divenuto particolarmente noto per la sua ricerca nell’uso delle luci che unisce a una composizione molto personale delle immagini. Ogni anno tiene workshops su la professione di reporter e l’uso del digitale.

L’approccio alla fotografia artistica è stata una naturale evoluzione della sua maturità professionale. Ha tenuto mostre personali sia in Italia che all’estero. Ha partecipato con una personale alla VII Biennale di Fotografia in Torino e ha conseguito nel 1998 il primo posto italiano per il Fuji European Press Award. Ha realizzato reportage pubblicitari per clienti quali i calendari Iveco. E' stato uno dei pionieri dell’elaborazione digitale, un mezzo che egli definisce “la riconquista della camera oscura per il fotografo del colore”. E' l'autore del Calendario Epson 2017, "Seanza Confini".

Born in Florence, Andrea studied geography at the local university. He continues to live between here, in a place he considers not so much an urban center but a continuous source of inspiration, and Bangkok, ideal base for his Asian works.

With the evolution of his vocation as an explorer, Andrea has become a travel photographer specialized in geographic and ethnographic reportage in every part of the world.

Today he works on assignment for major international magazines. He has published over 60 photographic and travel books.

Andrea has become especially known for his research on the use of existing light which he combines with a formal yet personalized composition of his images.

The approach to Fine Art Photography came as a natural evolution of this professional career.

His work has been exhibited both in Italy and abroad. He is the author of the 2017 Epson calendar "Senza Confini".

He participated with a personal show at the VII Biennale di Fotografia in Turin

and won the 1998 First Award in the Italian selection of the Fuji European Press Award.
