Michele Stanzione

Born in Benevento in 1981, Michele Stanzione showed his interest in all forms of art in general in his childhood and visited art exhibitions during his technical studies in spare time.

With those artistic edification and numerous artists friends’ influences, Michele Stanzione realised that his type of art took a diverse path from painting and sculpture, and preferred to express his vision of the world through digital camera and lens, beginning to give life in a first artistic phase to a series of surrealistic photo in which predominates color choice as the use of black and white.

On his way to taking photographs, Michele Stanzione has blended together beautifully scenic research and spontaneity. The resulting images go in search of a beauty that lasts over time, away from fads and temporary; their fine line between real and surreal becomes blurred, and eventfully disappear.
