|About the Artist:
Pietro Baroni (1977) is an artist and photographer born and raised in Italy, currently based in Milan.
His work focuses on contemporary social and philosophic issues.
He holds a degree in Natural Science for which he carried out a research project on lions in Tanzania and for five years he has also been a geological and naturalistic guide in Iceland and Morocco.
He has always had a big passion for photography: initially photographs went hand in hand with his globe trotting lifestyle allowing him to create reportages for important editorial publications like Panorama Travel, Bell’Europa, Bell’Italia and Marie Claire.
He visited Sarajevo several times after the war for humanitarian purposes and recently he has recently completed an in depth reportage about Power Stations in Italy on behalf of Alpiq and is currently working on three different artistic conceptual projects characterized by social and philosophical implications.
He loves to work on faces and on their emotional implications through an accurate analysis physiognomy: the subjects of a portrait are active and changing elements and often photography can capture interesting tears in the spirit.
