fabrizio q portrait

“I am living in the land between my photographs and reality.”

Fabrizio is an Italian photographer based in London (UK).  
He was born in Naples (Italy) in 1970. After graduating from Engineering university, he moved to the UK where he currently lives. 
Self-taught and greatly inspired by an uncle who was professional photographer, Fabrizio has always been passionate about visual arts and in the last ten years has completely devoted himself to photography. 
Fabrizio is currently focusing his creative energy on a series of personal projects where he puts together various types of images - such as portraits and scenes with family, friends or chance encounters, pictures of indoor and outdoor spaces, candid and documentary photographs, fragments from dreams and from daily experiences - with the aim to create layered, deep and introspective stories.
He is a founding member of the Italian photography collective SPontanea.

Signed limited edition prints are available for sale as well. For more information please contact Fabrizio.
