about

Making photography is a beautiful human experience that use the amazing power of photography to explain a lot about photography and relationships. It's about the magic that is living into the light and how to use it, the light that is also living into the subjects which you photograph and must respect and know before photograph them. It's a really fascinating word that enrich deeply yourself. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to make this.
"Less is more".

Angelo Marani, born 1975, is a photographer based in Bologna, Italy. Always attracted by the camera as a means of expression and a descriptive tool, he started as a self-taught. He studied photography in a school of Bologna where he also attended a master in photojournalism with a member of the Contrasto photo agency, he also studied in New York, København, Stockholm, and France; here he attended an interesting workshop about portraiture for two years, with a famous american portrait photographer which gave to him a beautiful intention to use the camera. He realized many projects and exhibitions and received different honorable mentions. Much of his work focuses on portrait and reportage with an intimate approach.
