Paolo Bongianino

“In my opinion, an image only is not enough; it must somehow move the imagination of the viewer and emotion in him: only then can I say I have reached my target when I shot. This contemporaneity does not always happen, but it happens even more often than I can imagine. Image and emotion: this is the summary of my approach to photography.”

Born in Trivero in 1956 and living in Milan, Italian artist Paolo Bongianino is married with two children. He received his first camera in the early sixties and has since never given up looking at the world around him through the lens of his camera with curiosity and attention.

“After a career in management and also considering the economic downturn Italy has been suffering in the last decade, I decided to devote my time to photography and fine art prints. All my works are printed only in fine art inkjet printing in limited edition on top quality cotton paper, the only exception being the “mini fine art prints,” A4 prints on cotton paper without quantity limitation.

In my opinion, an image only is not enough; it must somehow move the imagination of the viewer and emotion in him: only then can I say I have reached my target when I shot. This contemporaneity does not always happen, but it happens even more often than I can imagine. Image and emotion: this is the summary of my approach to photography.

“immaginiedemozioni,” “images&emotions” is the brand name I have chosen for presenting my works on Facebook and the internet (www.immaginiedemozioni.it) where all contact details are available. I have also joined the "fronteversismo" art movement producing the "2in1" photo works showing two images one on each side of the support, a detailed description available on www.2in1.photo.

I also have my own page in PhotoVogue site, where 39 works are displayed having been approved by the site curators, the address of the page is:”
