Simone Casetta

He began at a very young age working as an assistant at the studio and in the darkroom of photographers Luciano Ferri and Gianni Greguoli. Later, beginning an initial professional photographic activity under the guidance of graphic designer Dante Bighi in Milan, he also assisted at the studio of other fashion and advertising photographers. Independent work began in 1980, with assignments for periodical press and private companies. In 2010, he founded the "Conservatory of Photography," a center of pre-digital photographic culture committed to the practice of traditional direct-to-negative printing techniques. The "Conservatory" trains young collaborators and offers printing and developing services to photographers, artists, historical archives and institutions. Since 2007, he has been teaching photography at the Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche ISIA in Urbino, at the two-year master's degree in Editorial Graphics. He lives in Olgiate Molgora, Lecco, Italy.
