The 2019 edition of the portfolio for the photographer Mattia Balsamini is a proper book divided into two volumes. To order the huge amount of work of the photographer and to create a story that would express the incredible variety of his projects is not possible with a rational layout: then we decided to assume his ubiquitous approach to photography into a stream of consciousness that led the reader from a subject to another, in a breathless flow of images.
Mattia Balsamini was born in Pordenone, Italy. Moved to Los Angeles, California in 2008. Assisted still life, adv, fashion photographers for a while, carried lots of strobes and stands and cases for them. In 2010 assisted David LaChapelle at his Hollywood Studio, working both on set and in the archive. Graduated with Honorable Mention at Brooks Institute and moved back to Italy – still favorite place on Planet Earth. Educator at MeLa, the rendering and interactive research department at IUAV University of Venice.
