About Elena Clara Savino
I’m an Italian contemporary historian with a particular interest in the past three centuries. My interests as a photographer are centred on humankind. I like to say that I am interested in the man’s endeavour instead of God’s creation. My perspective of photography has been shaped primarily through my encounter with the major photographers of the XIX and XX century and the harmonious compositions of the past world.
