“Photography is not for the satisfaction of others. Neither is it some kind of responsibility or mission. It is a mean to fill a personal void.”
Fabrizio is an Italian photographer based in London (UK).
Fabrizio was born in Naples (Italy) in 1970. After graduating from Engineering university, he moved to the UK where he currently lives. Self-taught, but also greatly inspired by an uncle who was professional photographer, Fabrizio has always been passionate about visual arts and in the last eight years has completely devoted himself to photography.
Fabrizio is a founding member of the Italian photography collective SPontanea.
