Enrico Burani


Matteo Bosi

He was born in 1966 in Cesena – that is, in the Italian region of hospitality – where for years he has been living with his loved wife and two sons.

After graduating from the famous Istituto d’Arte della Ceramica di Faenza (‘Art Institute of Ceramics in Faenza’) in 1985, he has begun a long artistic career characterized by continuous experimentation. This has been leading him to use multiple means of expression: from ceramics to painting, from photography to digital techniques.

Since 2000, he is the owner of the Communication Agency “Pixel Planet” S.a.s. Through this, he got to work:
both as communication designer, by creating graphics, packaging, web-design and advertising campaigns,
and as fitter and organizer for Art Museums and Photographic Exhibitions in Italy and abroad on behalf of government agencies and foundations.

An indisputable cameo of his agency is also the commercial photography for Companies that need to produce advertising campaigns, cataloguing and marketing of their own products.

Since 2012 Pixel Planet also offers courses dedicated to Photography, and it has become itself an exhibition space, as well as a place for cultural exchange.





Aurelio Bormioli

Aurelio Bormioli was born in Savona in 1969. Since he was a child, he was interested in photography thanks to his father who was an amateur photographer.
As years went by, he attended workshops with many famous sector experts, such as Ivano Bolondi, Pino Ninfa, and Ernesto Bazan.
Nowadays, he works with a professional Nikon equipment, although he usually uses films as well, especially pinhole cameras, that are strongly admired by Aurelio.
The first 12 photos of this portfolio have been made with a pinhole camera ( Zero 2ooo 6×6 – Zero 6×9 Multi Format ) and Ilford Delta 100/400 Pro film – Rollei Digibase 200 CN, Fuji Velvia 50/100


Francesco Ridolfi

Francesco Ridolfi is a portrait photographer active in both the commercial and artistic fields.

His work has been acknowledged and published in Italy and internationally.

For commercial work, Francesco is represented in Italy by Take Production, while his artistic research is promoted in the UK by the Doinel Gallery of London.

Francesco loves photography that succeeds in seizing the passing moment, but is drawn more deeply by frames that, in finalising a project of research, find the right form for a well-conceived idea.

He has recently begun using video – a natural extension of his photographic work.

Francesco’s working life is divided between Bologna, Milan and Brussels, for commercial and editorial assignments.

Elena Gallotta

Elena Gallotta is an Italian born fine-art photographer currently based in Ireland.

She comes from a ballet and theatre background which strongly influences her work.

Her images reflect her relationship with dance and non-verbal communication itself.

Her work can often be defined as an antropolologic study of the the human body and it’s mysterious subtle language.

Elena’s way of composing a picture and working with the light is hugely inspired by her passion for paintings, especially the Old Masters.

She has been published in numerous art magazines throughout Europe. In 2009 she went back to her first love when she was commissioned to make a short dance film by the Irish Arts Council.

She collaborated with two major dance performers from France and the film was a very productive visual-kinetic exchange between them all. The final result, “Story of One” was selected and screened in the Oxford Dance Festival in 2010.

Fosco Maraini

Gabriele Rigon

I must be the luckiest man alive. I not only get to meet and photograph the world’s most beautiful women, but when I’m not in the studio or on location I fly Chinook and Huey helicopters for the Italian army! My passion is to capture and share the sensual beauty of the female form. The female nude is, for me, nature’s finest gift. I am so moved by this aesthetic that I try to translate what I feel into still images. I don’t use many models as I prefer to form special working relationships with just a few. I think this is the most important part of taking a great photograph. I have very special feelings for my models and they for me. A recipe of trust, understanding, humour and friendship allows my models and I to relax, to relax in such a way that my camera becomes simply a tool for capturing the moments we share. Many people ask me whether I am a romantic when they see my photographs. I take this as a great compliment. It means that I portray women in the right light. I am romantic and in front of such extraordinary beauty I want to create poetry with my camera.

Marco Barone


I’m a passionate wildlife and landscape photographer. I was born in Giaveno (Turin), Italy in 1976 and I have always been a lover of mountains and wildlife. I try to convey in my photographs the emotions that I feel every time I’m in the wilderness.

Eolo Perfido

My name is Eolo Perfido and I’m a Street Photographer based in Rome.

My photographic journey began 20 years ago having the honour to assist on the field and learn from great masters of photography such as Steve McCurry, Elliott Erwitt, James Nachtwey ed Eugene Richards

Fulvio Roiter

The work of Fulvio Roiter occupies a unique position in the history of 20th century Italian photography.

Born in 1926 in Meolo, in the countryside of the Veneto region, while still very young he carried out a series of magnificent photographic reports on Sicily, Umbria, Andalusia and the Algarve, which made him known on the international scene as the child prodigy of Italian photography. Up to the 1960s, Roiter represented a model, often unattainable, for style, technique and formal rigour. In the 1970s, on the crest of the wave of success obtained, he abandoned black and white photography to dedicate himself to colour photography, also modifying his style and subject matter radically.

Thus it is possible to state that there are two different sides to Roiter. On the one hand there is the popular photographer of Venice and carnival masks, of postcards and gift-books printed in innumerable copies. On the other there is the great artist of the first masterpieces in black and white, almost completely forgotten and rediscovered after long research and examination of the archives of the photographer.

Felice Beato


Felice Beato, also known as Felix Beato, was an Italian–British photographer. He was one of the first people to take photographs in East Asia and one of the first war photographers. He is noted for his genre works, portraits, and views and panoramas of the architecture and landscapes of Asia and the Mediterranean region. Beato’s travels gave him the opportunity to create images of countries, people, and events that were unfamiliar and remote to most people in Europe and North America. His work provides images of such events as the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and the Second Opium War, and represents the first substantial oeuvre of photojournalism. He had an impact on other photographers, and his influence in Japan, where he taught and worked with numerous other photographers and artists, was particularly deep and lasting.

Elisa Imperi

My name is Elisa and I was born in Umbria. I sometimes take refuge in the small rays of light.
I approach photography as an autodidact, studying and reading books on the floors of libraries and taking photographs of the streets of my adopted city, Perugia.
I photograph to let out something that I have inside, a thought, a dream, an emotion, a cry.

Guido Argentini

Was born in Florence, Italy.
He studied Medicine for three years at the university of Florence.
At 23 he decided to turn his passion for photography into a profession and started to shoot fashion and beauty.
Since 1990 he lives in the USA, in Los Angeles .
His work has been published by some of the leading magazines in the world.

In 2003, Guido Argentini’s first book, “SILVEREYE”, presented an exquisite series of studio and landscape nudes. That work was a reflection of the artist’s great personal passion for sculpture and dance.

In his second book, “PRIVATE ROOMS”, 2005, Guido Argentini offers an entirely different type of personal journey, one where eroticism and beauty are clearly inseparable. Within these pages, we are invited to take a glimpse into a unique ‘feminine universe’. This second book is the result of ten years of photographs, all taken in the intimacy of closed rooms, ancient villas, modern apartments, many hotels, from the most elegant five-star locations enriched with luxurious velvets and four-posted beds to the most squalid insignificant hourly-rate motels furnished with cheap plastic chairs and worn-out wallpaper. A universe where all these rooms become the theaters of the artist’s self-directed voyeuristic fantasies.

“REFLECTIONS” was published in 2007, a vast collection of photographs of women looking at themselves in mirrors: a sort of unconscious research about the woman who studies herself, falls in love, and gets lost in her own image.

“SHADES OF A WOMAN” published in 2010.
In this new book I began exploring different levels and nuances of the female nature.
I feel that I constantly need to find new visions of the world and thus, life and women.
This latest project of mine is not my final goal; if ever, I believe this to be a starting point.
All I have accomplished so far has been “for the eyes of a woman”.
Women have always been the source of inspiration for all my art forms and, I suppose, this has been the case for all men who have tried to create something in the past.

This book contains just a few photos that have been published in my previous books; most are brand new shots, where I attempted to put in pictures a narrative. Consider them simply as single images, like frames taken from a movie. The story, the music, words, and silences are all left to the imagination of those who look at my photographs.

“ARGENTUM” was published in 2013.

It is the final collection of Guido Argentini’s silver photographs.
Evoking the luminous polished planes of the work of Brancusi and the verve of Degas’ ballet sketches, these photographs endow the human body with both the solidity of sculpture and the vivid energy of dance.
Using geometrical props Guido Argentini created a contrast between the human body and the archetypal forms of geometry: triangles, circles and squares.
The final result of many years of work is this book: Argentum.
A collection of more than 100 photographs of women and men: dancers, gymnasts and aerialists.
Argentum is a book but is also a movie, a documentary that reveals
The concepts that are behind the making of this book: Argentini’s esthetic of the human form and the skills of the athletes that posed for these photographs.
