Biagio Barraco

Hello everybody,

I love all forms of artistic expression, and I think I'm a creative person. Practical photography, painting and drawing with passion. The practice of painting allowed me to externalize my inner world, but it is with photography I try to understand the outside world, translate it and relate it to myself. In effect the photograph is not like painting, it is not "add" something to the white canvas, but rather to subtract, and select from the real world that is needed to "representation" of an emotion. Even today in my work the things learn through observation, with the painting and the photograph are a fundamental part of my professional background and stimulus for my perennial curiosity.
I like the black and white. I consider it the easiest way to abstract the "selection of reality", to "remove" even more than it could have done at the time of capture. In effect I leave the color on my shots only when it is functional to communicate an emotion.
