Riccardo Bandiera


He was born in 1973 and lives a stone’s throw from the sea in Italy and discovered photography by chance after technical studies and a job as an engineer. For several years is a freelance photographer, professional writing at TAU ​​Visual, alternating commercial work and art exhibitions. He has exhibited in Barcelona, ​​Brussels, Arles, Turin, Genoa, Rome, in collective and personal.
The author paints vanishing women, his pictures need both semantic and iconographic interpretation, trascending mere sight and almost resulting into story-telling. Each image refers to a single story but can also be read starting from a particular feature. The same creative process is used in metaphysical art: an unusual environment places the main subject within a scene highlighting the importance of the present moment by drawing the attention to words behind each composition made of a single character in relation to a narrative background.
