Rosario Leotta was born in Catania, Italy, in 1982. He graduated in Communication Sciences in 2008 at the University of Catania.
In 2009 he moved to Naples where he attended the Master in Photography at ILAS.
In 2011 he won the edition of the "Premio Arte" in Milan, exposing his works at Permanente Museum.
The following year his photographs were shown in Miami, among the ten projects selected by the curator Gean Moreno for "The End" award.
From 2013 to 2018 he participated in several exhibitions, including "Estate" at "Lo Studio" in Büdingen, Frankfurt and recently in the inaugural opening of the "Plenum Gallery" in Catania.
His research began around 2005 and it was initially inspired by surrealism and focused on the possibilities offered by photographic pictorialism. In the following years his work has evolved into a "metaphysical realism" in which the use of black and white photography was predominant, up to the most recent works in color.
He lives and works in Giarre, Sicily, Italy.
