My name is Carmine and I am a self-taught photographer based in Rome, where my passion for photography began in 2014. All my works have a photographic base. They are the result of captures made with an digital camera. The subsequent processing is only a continuation of the original photographic capture that is always maintained as a base. My work is a depiction of reality as I perceive it. I'm constantly asking myself to look beyond what is in front of me. I find myself gravitating toward scenes that are full of friction, distortion and movement, using photography as a way to share my perspective own reality.
