About

Fabrizio Intonti works across the visual and contemporary arts, focusing primarily on photography in both analogue and digital modalities. He works extensively with portrait photography, but is also known for his work with a variety of subjects including street scenes and nature. He has completed a number of different projects that show his diverse approach, ranging from the black and white exploration titled “Sottosopra” to numerous portrait series. Throughout his work, Fabrizio aims to highlight the extraordinary aspects that can be found in everyday scenes all around us.

After graduating with a degree in Philosophy in 1994, Fabrizio turned his attention to the world of photography. Since then, he has worked on a number of projects that show his progression as a photographer, each focusing on distinct themes and subjects. Some of these projects take a multidisciplinary approach, such as “Nudi versi”, which is a series of nude photographs interspersed with short poems.

My figurative photography has been featured in a huge number of exhibitions across Europe, from the Getty Images Gallery in London to solo exhibitions in Rome.
