The photographic work of Italian artist Antonio Biagiotti is as compelling in its symbolism and meaning as it is stunning in its deceptive simplicity. Biagiotti is a master of light and is able to achieve the perfect balance between illumination and shadow again and again, offering up images so crisp, clear, and infused with detail that the viewer is transported to a whole new world of line and form. Equally as impressive is Biagiotti’s use of composition, with which he creates just the right amount of tension to hold the viewer’s interest and invite new meaning into ordinary subjects, landscapes, and urbanscapes.
Biagiotti’s work stands out in today’s digital world as his photographs are taken and processed in a traditional manner - the artist works with black and white film which is developed and printed personally in his darkroom. As Biagiotti explains, each image isn’t edited on a computer but rather “the light has simply impressed for a moment the film exposed by me.”
Antonio Biagiotti currently lives and works in Castel di Casio, in the province of Bologna, Italy. He works professionally under the name Antonio Biagiotti Fotografo.
