Name: Fabio Montalto , Italy
Category and Expertise: Portrait|Portrait_P|Deeper Perspective, Non-Professional


Entry Description: One day in February, so as a joke, with my friend Paul, in his studio, we decided to take some portrait photos each other. I did not think I take some great photos.........but when I viewed them on PC, I noticed an extraordinary light.......disruptive........so dynamic........by Lucie Awards. Certainly the subject has been good....... but important simple details were also......... glasses, coat and hat........my skills in setting the right digital contrast did the rest. A mix of attractive composition, in which light enhances the prominences, accentuates wrinkles, jumps between the hairs shave......... while the shade carving, sinks, digs into the soul......... for a more visual depth.

About the Artist:

Fabio Montalto, in arte Mont’, (Catania 18/09/68) vive e lavora a Noto (Siracusa) – Italy. Per troppo tempo lascia la passione fotografica parallela ai suoi interessi artistici, senza mai approfondirla abbastanza. Dai primi scatti son trascorsi più di vent’anni, ma è con l’avvento del digitale che riscopre il piacere d’inquadrare, di creare, di fotografare. Mont’ ama la fotografia in senso universale perché è grazie ad essa che coglie il presente………….lo sottrae al nulla…………..documentando il suo passato. Ritiene anche che la post-produzione digitale, ben dosata, non pregiudica l’arte fotografica, ma l’aiuta e la trasforma, in alcuni casi, in arte concettuale. Dalle sue ultime esperienze fotografiche sembrerebbe che il ritratto ed il nudo rivestano un ruolo importante della sua produzione e per i quali ricerca sempre una dimensione artistica molto personale. Partecipazione a concorsi fotografici nazionali ed internazionali.
