Vincenzo Castella

Italian photographer, guitarist and filmmaker, in 1975, after studying Cultural Anthropology at "La Sapienza" University in Rome, he began his photographic activity. One of his most important works is Private Geography, color photographs of domestic interiors made between 1975 and 1982. In 1976 he took a trip through the southern United States, where he made, together with Lucio Maniscalchi, the 16mm film "Hammie Nixon's People," focusing on the colors and sounds of African American society. The most important works are "Nomadic Cities," about contemporary Western cities, and "Buildings," urban portraits shot from very high, but never aerial positions.
