Gianpaolo Conti


Gianpaolo Conti is a director and photographer, he was born in Pico Farnese and lives and works in Rome, he started photographing at a young age and in 1989, after graduating from directing, not forgetting his passion for photography, he made dozens of documentaries and video clips , personally taking care of post-production. His expressive language was born in the dark room and then continued in the cinema and video editing room. He started by projecting slides on a wall and then photographing subjects between the projection and the wall, then continuing to experiment in the long editing sessions, where he undertook his own research on the images, starting from the meticulous observation of the individual frames, selecting them and reassembling them in sequences of shapes and colors through their decomposition and recomposition. Conti realizes his works starting from photographs and through the support of electronic versions of brushes, filters, and chromatic processing, he is able to create and produce works of art. There is no doubt that his role as a director has played a fundamental role for Conti, in the last ten years he has made dozens of commercials. The maturity of the pictorial look grown and refined through the cinematic eye dries his images from every redundancy and his gaze leads him to confront himself with a spatiality that goes in search of further mental and visual boundaries and takes us into his remote world and modern, natural and artificial, open to different interpretations. He held his first personal show in January 2009.
