About Photographer

Dido Fontana was born in Italy in the 70s.He spent much of his childhood in his father's dark room, playing with cameras and sniffing acids.He photographs, paints, plays heavy metal music, sculpts and lifts weights...jealously guarding only two of this great passions. In an almost voyeuristic, direct and honest manner he immortalises people and characters on 35mm film and occasionally uses 120mm and Polaroids."...I'm interested in the representation in its true essence, with no unnecessary frills, accessories, special effects or extras".His works have been exhibited in art galleries worldwide and he collaborates with numerous magazines and web-zines.In 2007 he won first prize for the Best Photo at the Pitti Immagine Award in Florence.He currently works between Italy, Switzerland, New York and Los Angeles.
