Entry Description: Claudio Falcone, from Catania, Italy, born in '75, does not like to call himself a photographer, but rather someone that takes pictures.
His passion dates back more than 20 years ago when he started shooting with an SLR, given to him by his father, setting with the lens fragments of memory mediated by his own personal vision of reality. For him, self-taught, technique is necessary but not sufficient. His technique comes from instinct, and the result is born from imagining the shot direct to the naked eye, making it a reality with a measured perspective from his hand.
A neo-neorealist style that anachronistically prefers black and white because that's the image he sees. A chromatic gray that elegantly exalts the games of shadow and natural light that bring the photo to life or allow it to be lived dreamily. No filters, no artificial light, no installation and very little use of chromatic effects.
His credo is precisely to capture reality, the real non-artificial one and without masks. These intimate and unshareable images that for years have been jealously guarded and never exposed.
His credo: "Seeing, doing"
