About me
ENGLISH:

Demian Savinio is the "alter ego" (as photographer) of Domiziano Cristopharo, actor and movie director internationally recognized thanks to his first movie "House of Flesh Mannequins" (Los Angeles, 2008).
Savinio's technical brilliance as a photographer is such as to transform each of his images from a simple document to a sensual piece of art.
Not many photographers have so ruthlessly expressed a personal vision through the camera.
The whites are often so bright, in their dark backgrounds, as to go past your eyes straight into your heart... or your soul. White light, white heat, white meat. The result is to give forms three-dimensional reality. Instead, the glossy and colorful look of the flesh, it feels as if you are deeply close to a real living body.
His fine art photography has been the subject of CD covers, movie posters and exhibitions, with works residing in many significant private collections.

MODEL SEARCH: Feel free to contact me! I accept also INTERESTING proposal of TFP/CD shoots... I really dont understand why - in a so arrogant way - usually the most part of the photographers on this site are so arrogant about TFP: Everyone of us is arrived where we are 'cause - and thx - to someone else time dedicated for free for improve our work, so... I will never stop be grateful and pay back.

ITALIANO:

Domiziano Cristopharo, oggi regista e performer, si forma come artista visivo presso un istituto d’arte con specializzazione in decoro ecclesiastico, approfondendo il percorso all’Accademia delle Belle Arti di Roma: è qui che Cristopharo, coadiuvato dalla fortuna di avere come insegnante Nato Frascà (con cui approfondisce discipline di “teoria della percezione” e “psicologia della forma”) sviluppa la sua vena Dadaista realizzando collages, poesie “merz” derivate da Schwitters e ready-made, con una concettualità che sarà la base del suo approccio con il linguaggio estetico e cinematografico (tutto è nuovo e tutto ridiventa nuovo).
La tecnica del collage attraverso il manuale ritaglio ed incollaggio di immagini preesistenti, cede con gli anni il posto ad immagini realizzate appositamente da Cristopharo (fotografia e pittura), assemblate digitalmente con software di computergrafica per ottenere un effetto quanto più vicino al realistico, ma senza mai rinunciare ad una artigianalità che si ritrova nel body painting e nell'allestimento scenico. Non lo abbandonano le tematiche provocatorie e mistiche che sono una costante della sua "politica".

Amo il body painting così come il ritocco digitale. Son aperto a collaborazioni con fotografi e modelli (anche non professionisti) che vogliono sperimentare con la loro immagine.

Più foto son visibili sul mio sito; Ho realizzato diversi calendari anche per l'estero, copertine di CD musicali e poster cinematografici.

La fotografia è principalmente una passione per me, son aperto a ogni stimolo creativo, non necessariamente economico! Non capisco l'arroganza con cui certi "artisti" qui mettono il freno a alle collaborazioni non pagate: è proprio grazie a quelle che tutti noi siamo partiti da un qualche punto per arrivare, semmai siamo arrivati...
