Sorry, nothing in cart.
I meet Francesco in his studio in Milano where he lives and looking at his photos I understand the meaning of a black and white picture, how much it can express without using the colour. During my first visit I express him my interest in transferring some of his most significant shots on my t-shirts. This was the start of the exclusive project with one of the greatest contemporary photographer of black and white.
Francesco Radino was born in Bagno a Ripoli, (Florence) in 1947 by parents who are both painters.
After studies in Sociology in 1970, he became a professional photographer and he chooses to work in various fields, from photography to industrial design, architecture and landscape.
Since the Eighties he participated in several projects of public research in the area, including the “Archivi dello spazio” campaign, within the Project Area Architectural and Environmental Heritage of the Province of Milan, the project Osserva.Te.R promoted by the Lombardy Region, the project European Eyes on Japan organized by Eu Jap Fest, Atlas 2003 for the Italian Ministry of Heritage and Culture and “Tramsformazione” for the Museum of Contemporary Photography Villa Garland.
Always intertwined artistic and professional work , he is now considered one of the most influential authors in the contemporary photography scene in Italy.
Participant in the development of research on contemporary landscape photography, he has developed, over the years, a free way to explore the reality that today goes beyond the genre of landscape, opening up to every aspect of the world, the nature of the urbanized areas, the human figure objects, from animals to artifacts of human history.
He has exhibited his work in galleries and museums in Italy, Europe, Japan, USA and his works are in public and private collections worldwide.
As an author he has published numerous books including: “Italy Lucania”, Il Diaframma, Milan 1980, “Modus Videndi”, Idea Books, London 1989, “Morphosis”, Onebyone Contemporary Art Gallery, Tokyo 1992, “Mutations”, Art &, Udine 1994, “Inside”, Baldini e Castoldi, Milan 2001, “Reframe, the rooms of the time”, Italian Photography Contemporary Art, London 2007.
He recently created the video “After September Eleven”, “Stories of earth and sea”, “The Good Earth where the rice comes”, “Diary of a western traveller”
