CHRISTIAN TAGLIAVINI: NOT SIMPLY IMAGES
Christian Tagliavini, born in 1971, is the Italian-Swiss artist photographer, author of the advertising campaign dedicated to the collection La Compagnia Di Caterina. Tagliavini's creative project revisits the subjects of the collection starting with drawings of 16th century forms. His sketches are the working base for the creation of living and scenic handcrafted sculptures. The result is shots similar to paintings, modern frescos with an ancient taste taking the observer in a suspended in time dimension.
A self-taught photographer, Tagliavini originally trained in architecture and worked as a graphic designer. Fascinated by the technical aspects of photography, he tried his hand at several photographic disciplines before discovering the mise-en-scène technique. Embracing the art of slow photography, Tagliavini’s creative approach involves meticulous planning and careful design, including initial historical and iconographic research, feasibility assessments, sketches, storyboarding and color testing. The shots become compositions that bring together the subjects and their details entirely hand-built according to Christian's designs.
