Carlo was first introduced to the camera at the age of four when his father, after examining some of his own prints, was stuck by one outstanding picture, and realised it was in fact taken by his infant son. Interestingly, Carlo hereafter developed an aversion to all things photographic and distanced himself from this field completely. Three years ago, Carlo found that from the solace and adoration he felt in concentrating on and appreciating his natural surroundings, the landscapes of his native country, Italy, emerged an intense desire to capture his experiences through the visual medium. In 2006 at age 24, Carlo felt compelled to honour and to share these images, and so picked up a camera. Having previously studied mathematics, physics and geometry within an Engineering degree, Carlo had no artistic background or education in photography. Yet the strength and intensity of the passion he intrinsically feels for photography flourishes, and he now pursues his new endeavour with vigour and a raw enthusiasm. Carlo’s approach to photography combines the fascinating unpredictability of one’s instinct with precision, logic and reason - skills and outlooks which he acquired and honed in his Engineering studies. Within his photography, art and science, the objectively observable and the illusion of ‘truth,’ as well as the escape from reality, are married together inseparably. After graduating from university in Sweden, Carlo moved to Australia in November 2008. He is now based in Sydney and is working with North Sullivan in his Glebe studio. He has been working at this studio since November the 12th. During this short time, Carlo has produced fashion portraits works, and has been training specifically in studio and commercial photography. In addition to working at this official capacity with North Sullivan, Carlo has delighted in capitalising upon newfound opportunities to explore and photograph his surroundings. He has intuitively been drawn to some of New South Wales’ unique environments. While Carlo’s personal passion lies in photographing landscapes and the natural world, he is now focusing on and specialising in photography for advertising and people photography.
