Creating a photographic world filled with the beauty of transcendentalism, Nicholas Loffredo depicts a setting where the pain lingered with unrequited love can breathe, and grow. Both artist and subject find mutuality and understanding in this space of loneliness, Nicholas Loffredo creates portraits and self portraits that illustrate the emotional juxtaposition one feels when letting go of such a lover. Mr. Loffredo was greatly influenced by Rineke Dijkstra’s beach portraits and Parmigiano’s male portrait paintings, both depicting an emotion that is truthful and transitional.
Nicholas Loffredo uses a full frame Digital SLR camera, along with some landscape images captured using his 35mm camera. Mr. Loffredo Photographs throughout Central Park and his hometown, the Jersey Shore, both locations bringing a landscape filled with nature's elements.
