This series of photographs is about encounters. Portraiture in its purest form is a reflection of spontaneous, curious and ceaseless encounters. Each final image becomes the outcome of practicing photography as an engaging experience. For me, these portraits are about showing the reciprocal relationship that exists between the photographer and his subject; what I take from them in a picture is given back as a reflection of an authentic moment.
This show exhibits some of Carrozzini’s most notable portraits from the first decade of his career. The uniqueness of these works lies in the notoriety as well as the sincerity of his subjects. As the subjects get in front of Carrozzini’s lens, a genuine intimacy is revealed and shared. These dynamic and beautifully lit portraits exhibit Francesco Carrozzini’s talent as a portrait photographer. The photographs reflect each shot as an unconstrained and spontaneous encounter; each talent grants Carrozzini a consistent level of trust, which becomes evident through their expressions and body language.
