My name is Riccardo Di Giovanni, I’m 20 years old and I’m from Savignano sul Rubicone, in Emilia Romagna. I started studying agriculture in 2010 in Cesena and from October 2015 I’m a student in Fondazione Studio Marangoni in Florence.
I started taking photos at the age of 14 just because I didn’t know what to do in my life, I accidentally discovered photography and to photograph. I like what I think it’s beautiful and often it’s something really simple or bad.
I started working on the beach selling portraits to the tourists but I vastly understood that I wasn’t that type of person but most important, I understood that I would have something more than a simple work with photography, something with which I could explore and know myself, the only one that I don’t actually understand.
I started working as a photographer in the discos and I’ve been collecting a lot of snapshots that I have expose in my city, the shots didn’t want to judicate or support my peers’ night’s life, it was just my objective point of view then I had an exhibition with some of the most important shots called “YOLO”.
Then I known Fondazione Studio Marangoni. I’ve learn a lot of notions in photographic history but most important in the visual perception.
In the summer of the 2016 I had an exhibition of my final project of the first school year called “Over real”.
In the summer of the 2017 I had an exhibition of my final project of the second school year called “My God is the Sun”.
