My Artist of the Day today is a young Italian photographer, Matteo Palmieri, who uses only an analog camera, for now at least.
“In 2007 I held a digital reflex in my hands. Digital lets you learn very quickly and without spending money. You shoot photos, you can see them immediately on the screen and you can improve very soon. Then one day you go your house’s attic, take your father’s old analog reflex and everything changes. It’s almost two years that I just shoot with analog cameras.”
“Analog because… Analog photography’s results represent me more than digital ones. This does not mean that I am opposed to digital photography.
Do you have a favourite subject? I like feminine subjects.
The perfect shot… The perfect shot is made first thanks to the light, then the subject completes the whole. Otherwise it’s true in photography that perfection is completely relative.”
