Federico is a self-taught photographer based on Italy’s Adriatic coast. He discovered his passion for photography accidentally when he found an old Pentax camera. His love for the medium grew out of his fondness for the physical nature of film. Federico still shoots all of his images using film; he prefers the grain and imperfections that are inherent to this method over the precision of digital photography. The provocative, high contrast images that Federico captures in black and white feel distinctly retro. His pictures mysteriously fail to provide context for the time and place of each subject, leaving the viewer contemplating the innumerable possibilities.
