Umberto Stefanelli, Italian photographer, developed his artistic skills in New York, where he lived for several years and where he began to express his creativity, with his very own personal style of photography, re-elaborating his images using innovative techniques.
Following on from his experience in the USA, he discovered new horizons in Japan, with its colors and light, which conditioned a further transformation in his photographic art, closely tied to the magical instant developing of Polaroid film.
Every single image is unique and as a result of the fusion between gelatin film and the paper support, which is decorated with gold plated, silver leaves or different kind of papers, elaborated depending on the forms and colors of the original image.
A carefully studied creation, which demands time and a craftsman's touch.
Each resulting piece of works is unique, alive and vibrating, strongly three dimensional, characteristics which have made Umberto Stefanelli one of the most innovative portrait photographers on the international artistic scene.
His work was presented in many exhibitions, publications, national and international magazines.
He collaborated to several artistic projects with: POLAROID, LEVIâS STRAUSS, LâOREAL, NOKIA, EPSON, GREY GROUP, YOUNG & RUBICAM, NIPPON TELEVISION, ZOOM MAGAZINE.
A selection of his work is included in the Polaroid Collection, in the Brescia National Museum of Photography and in other important public and private collections.
Umberto Stefanelli works trough Agents or Representatives in Europe, Usa, China and Japan.
