A successful stint with freelancing led Luigi to a number of gallery shows and a portfolio overflowing with unique, haunting photorealistic images ranging from still life to commercial depictions of laborers in factories and mines.
Luigi’s technical skill is complemented by a startlingly original depiction of the human condition and the aspects of culture and nature that leave their imprint upon us. He creates work that is sensitive, evocative, understated, and elegant. Influenced by the Brazilian photojournalist Sebastiao Salgado, Luigi’s a esthetic is clean and classical, with a strong focus on his subject and no manipulation of the surrounding elements.
