Photography mini-feature: Niccolò Barone

Don't look back in anger

Whoever disenchants

L'age de raison

Today's photography mini-feature profiles the work of Niccolò Barone, a full-time photographer based out of Carpi, Italy. I asked Niccolò if he might tell us a little about himself and why he shoots what he does; here's what he had to say...

"I live in a quiet Italian province, rich of poors but poor of ideas. I discovered my attraction for art and visual communication at an early age, I think I was five years old. My brother and my parents raised me and taught the knowledge of beauty in the classical sense, and after a while I discovered in photography the way how I can communicate. Most of my work focuses on the portrait, human or not, chosen as the channel link between the simplicity of a daily face and the silent communication that conveys an immobile image. A couple of years ago, I started my new photographic journey, totally dedicated to analog photography, based on the research of human character and introspective, but also opting for less stylistic and technical experimentation in favor of the continued research for an interpretive key to people. This kind of experimentation gives me the opportunity to find new creative solutions, the exercise required to take the more difficult test, to photograph the soul and, sometimes, its opposite."

Thanks, Niccolò! Don't forget, you can see more of his work not only at his main Flickr page but also his own website. And if you know of someone who you think should be featured here at CCLaP, by all means drop me a line at cclapcenter [at] gmail.com and let me know!
