Michele Mattiello (www.michelemattiello.com), 1964, Italy. I started shooting and begain darkroom practice in the 90’s. In 2003 I began to work with an ONLUS to make reportages on their activities. After this project, which lasted 5 years, I decided to focus on exploring the intimate sphere of people and body languages. Later experiences with other photographers lead me to deepen this research. I am not interested anymore just about representation, I try to express the intimate relationship with my subjects, showing the emotional state of the moment.
