Our Series , here in the website, are our artistic bookmarks through this process. Our Magazine a new thrilling challenge. Our Network a community of friends, ideas, inspiration and much more.
Coming from a background in robotics and software engineering, Davide Lanza is studying the reciprocal influences between photography and digital art. Inspired by Man Ray and Picasso's light graffiti, he aims to develop visual storytelling through his photographic work via either spontaneous shoots or visually estranging digital elaborations.
Based in Munich, Federico Puppo is an Italian-born photographer, video editor, and neuroengineering student. Due to his aerial drone shootings, he started working on urban exploration subjects. Inspired by Elliott Erwitt, he combines the spontaneity of everyday subjects with a surrealistic gaze.
Based in Turin, Giovanni Gradi is an architecture student and photography enthusiast. He worked with classic photography techniques along with digital elaboration. Inspired by Antoine D’Agata, after a few years of study, he came back to analog photography and scanning, starting his Restored project.
Software engineer with a background in electronics Stefano Massoletti is exploring digital techniques for photography. Following the rising movement of Glitch Art, he pushes image elaboration to the limit within the canons of classic photography.
